Program Information

School:Seneca College
Degree:Diploma; Co-op; Advanced
Field of Study:Computer Technology/Computer Systems Technology
Description:Seneca's School of Information and Communications Technology is a recognized leader in the networking world. This program is built on partnerships with some of the most influential names in networking today - Cisco, IBM, Microsoft - and focuses on network design, LAN administration and microcomputer support. Courses in the first three semesters are identical to those of the Computer Networking and Technical Support (CNS) program, allowing seamless transfer between the two. A valuable optional co-op in the senior semesters gives you an opportunity to apply your learning to the real world. The fourth, fifth and sixth semesters expose you to advanced concepts and hands-on training in network design and optimization, advanced topics in security, data communication and Voice over Internet Protocol (VOIP), UNIX/ Linux administration, multi-player gaming administration, IBM Series i operations and connectivity, and e-commerce support.

Students meeting all academic requirements may have the opportunity to complete an optional co-op work term(s) in a formal work environment. In most cases the work term(s) is a full-time paid position completed between two academic semesters. In programs with limited co-op opportunities, additional academic requirements and a passing grade on a communication assessment may be required for eligibility. Eligibility for participation does not guarantee a work position will be secured. Additional fees are required for those participating in the optional co-op stream regardless of success in securing a work position.
