Agreement brings international students to Conestoga

An agreement between Conestoga and the Continental Institute for International Studies (CIIS) will allow students from India to complete the final two years of study in Conestoga’s Electronics Engineering Technology - Telecommunications Systems program after an initial year of study in their home country.

Alan Vaughan, vice-president of Enrolment Management and International Education at Conestoga and Ignac Kolenko, chair of Engineering & Information Technology, participated in the signing ceremony held at CIIS on March 3, 2015.

The three-year Electronics Engineering Technology - Telecommunications advanced diploma program provides students with the skills and knowledge to design, build, test and repair complex electronic equipment and systems.

Graduates of the program are eligible for many roles in industry as a result of their in-depth understanding of electronics, particularly in such areas as digital signal processing and circuits operating at microwave frequencies.

The Ontario Association of Certified Engineering Technicians and Technologists (OACETT) recognizes this program as meeting all the academic requirements for certification in the Certified Engineering Technologist (C.E.T.) category.
