Whether it is a discussion about the telephone systems in an insurance office or the manufacturing of a widget on the shop floor, smart systems integration changes the capabilities and efficiencies of the work environment.
Increasingly, individuals and organizations look to computers, be they stand-alone or networked, to optimize workflow, establish a presence in global markets and improve communication. This pervasive integration of computers and their associated technologies has led to an emergence of job opportunities in the creation, integration and support of technology systems and infrastructures. Computer Engineering Technician will merge together computer networking and electrical engineering to create a Smart Systems Integration hybrid engineering model.

Program of Studies
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 Colleges and Universities (MCU) 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.
