Your Career

Train for a career making computer hardware and software better, faster and cheaper with our program.

This is a challenging industry, as companies hire skilled computer engineers to stay ahead of ever-changing consumer demand. According to the Canadian government’s Working in Canada website, there is a “high concentration of technology and research institutes” in the Toronto area. The same report says that employers are interested in recruiting people who have technology-specific and practical working experience.

Analytical and design skills are at the forefront of this ever-evolving career. Hardware and software integrated system implementations, testing, maintenance and the need for continuous improvement and upgrading keep graduates at the top of their game. Graduates work for technology companies, in addition to many other companies, organizations and government departments that need computer engineers.

Our Industry Partnerships

This program stays current through continuous communication and contact with various industry professionals. Our advisory committee meets regularly to discuss the curriculum and keep it relevant to today’s needs.
