Computer Systems Technology

Our Distinction

CST no longer offered as of September 2016

The Computer Systems Technician and Technology programs have been updated, and are no longer being offered in this format.

Students interested in computer systems can now apply to the new Information and Computer Systems program.

We distinguish ourselves from other institutions by providing opportunities for students to apply theory to real life situations and experiences within two years. We offer smaller class sizes allowing more personalized interaction with faculty.
