Information and Computer Systems

What You’ll Learn

Preparing you for your career in computer science

You’ll learn life-long skills and knowledge required to pursue a career in computing or computer systems in a competent and responsible way.

What to expect

This technical, rigorous program is composed of a one-year full-time certificate and a subsequent one-year diploma. Both credentials can be completed with an internship designation.

As a full-time student in the Information and Computer Systems program, you will spend 25-30 hours in class each week with approximately five hours of homework every day, including weekends. Before you begin this program you should be comfortable with basic computing skills, word processing, and file management.

Year 1

Your first year will provide you with knowledge of operating systems, web development, software engineering, and many different programming languages.

Year 2

As you continue your studies toward the Diploma in Information and Computer Systems, you’ll develop skills in system analysis and design, applied software development, and implementing security in a variety of situations.

Optional Co-op/Internship

As an Information and Computer Systems student, you have the option to supplement your classroom learning with the completion of up to three paid work terms. After successful completion of these optional work experiences, you'll qualify for either the Co-op or Internship designation when you graduate.
