  An offshoot of the Electronics Engineering Technology program,  the three year course (for which there is no equivalent in the U.S.) in Physics Engineering Technology included a variety of practical, hands-on courses such as Machine Shop, Physics Techniques, and Electric Motors (large), as well as the usual Physics, Math, and Electronics subjects.  Control Systems, for example, required the programming of a PDP-8 to manipulate a heavy Ward-Leonard motor-generator pair. 

For one of my projects, with guidance from the Physics Department of the National Research Council (Canada), I designed, built, and developed a fluidic (pneumatic) transistor, the protoype of systems now used in automobiles and other adverse environments.
