Electronic Hardware Design Courses

Testing Electronic Hardware Design Courses

Electronic Hardware Design Courses begin with an overview of analog and digital devices, microprocessors and microcontrollers, communication interfaces.

The courses are recommended for Electronic Engineers, Hardware Designers of digital ASIC, FPGA and CPLD devices, Test Engineers of integrated-circuit devices (ASIC's), and Project Managers. Students with some knowledge and practice of digital design and design verification using simulators, who need a broad, in-depth knowledge of effective and problematic coding styles for synthesis and test, will benefit from the course.

Canadian Technology College registration

There are two options to register as a student.

First option is to register on line. Second option is to register in our main office. We are open five days a week from Monday to Friday. Our hours of work are from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. If you require further assistant, please e-mail: or you may call us at 416-663-0665 lottery

Introduce us to a colleague or friend who would benefit from Canadian Technology College quality training and you will be entered to win a FREE Computer!
