Description:Computer Science Technology is a three-year program that prepares a student to work as software developers in small, medium or large enterprises that use networks and the Internet to conduct their business. Course content is constantly reviewed in consultation with the industry to ensure graduates are able to respond to changing market demands. The program encompasses two realms of programming: rapid application development (RAD) for desktop systems and web programming for dynamic e-commerce web sites and mobile device application development.

Through intensive theoretical and practical work in Computer Science subjects and by taking related courses in Business, Mathematics, and Psychology, the student will gain experience in creating state-of-the-art computer systems that support the needs and goals of modern businesses. Third-year students take part in an industrial internship where they gain valuable experience in the workplace. At various times during the program students are asked to prepare presentations enabling them to develop their communication and presentation skills.
