DescriptionThe CPA program follows an experiential learning approach to education by offering courses that parallel the software development practices used in the modern workplace. Throughout the program CPA students apply concepts learned in the classroom to solve programming problems. They learn to work in project teams, in which they design, develop, and test larger-scale applications. After gaining programming and problem solving skills, students experience real-world work environments by participating in our third-year work placement program.

The CPA program is a three-year program in which students learn a wide variety of skills, ranging from basic programming practices, problem solving, software design, and application development. Students learn many programming languages, including C#, C++, PHP, mySQL, JavaScript, and Java, and are taught the skills to learn other new languages. Over the duration of the program students will learn to write programs for desktop, web, mobile, and mainframe platforms. We are one of a handful of colleges in North America offering mainframe courses in COBOL, CICS, JCL and TSO.
