  • Objectives
    The Computing Science and Information Systems Department’s two-year Diploma (with Specialty) program prepares students for a career in the computer industry in a chosen area. This program combines business applications, system and networking concepts and programming languages. The Diploma (with Specialty) program gives students a broad business base and more advanced systems, programming and networking courses than does the one-year Certificate program. It also allows students to focus more on a chosen area such as Web Development, Software Development or Networking Infrastructure.
  • Practical experience
    Students in this program may be eligible for a Co-operative Education designation. Co-op Education involves alternating full-time academic and work terms. Job opportunities are enhanced after completing the Co-op option.
