Learning Outcomes

Program Learning Outcomes, often referred to as ‘Program Standards', set out the essential learning that a student must achieve before being deemed ready to graduate.

In many cases these program learning outcomes were developed by the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities (MTCU) in consultation with employers and educators who are experts in the program field. To ensure the outcomes remain current and in line with industry needs, we invite our employers, graduates working in the field and current students to re-examine and update them during regular, ongoing program review focus groups.

Additional Information

Bring Your Own Device (BYOD)

We are pleased to introduce you to our "Bring Your Own Device” Blended Learning Environment. The “BYOD” method of program delivery at Mohawk College requires you to have and use a mobile device throughout your program of study.

You will be using your own device – tablet, laptop or smart phone – as a learning tool in the classroom. That means fewer textbooks to lug around, easier access to information, helpful tools and improved collaboration with your peers.

If you would like further clarification, please feel free to contact the Program Coordinator.
