Advanced Computer And Technology

The Computer Technology (CT) program has been developed to provide training in the principles underlying the design of modern computer systems. Use the left-column navigation to refine your search by College, Program Availability, Program Start Date and more, or see the table below for a complete list of computer systems and engineering tech programs at Ontario colleges. And students who are more analytical can try a field like data science. Data science is all about using large sets of information to answers specific questions to aid corporate decision making or forward scientific progress.

Our students are living in a world that is changing at a dramatic pace—a world that grows smaller with each passing day due to the advances of technology. To be without a command of these skills is to be at a disadvantage in today’s—as well as tomorrow’s—world. It is essential for all students to have the opportunity to explore, understand and acquire the skills that will impact their lives.

The College appoints Program Advisory Committee members for diploma, degree, certificate and apprenticeship programs. Committees are composed of employers, practitioners and recent program graduates. College representatives (students, faculty, and administrators) are resource persons. Each committee advises the Board on the development of new programs, the monitoring of existing programs and community acceptance of programs.

Named in honor of the space shuttle which broke-up on re-entry, the Columbia supercomputer is an important part of NASA’s return to manned spaceflight after the 2003 disaster. Columbia was used in space vehicle analysis, including studying the Columbia disaster, but also in astrophysics, weather and ocean modeling. At its introduction, it was listed as the second fastest supercomputer in the world and this single system increased NASA’s supercomputing capacity 10-fold. The system was kept at NASA Ames Research Center until 2013, when it was removed to make way for two new supercomputers.

Effective fall 2013, RIT will convert its academic calendar from quarters to semesters. Each program and its associated courses have been sent to the New York State Department of Education for approval of the semester plan. For reference, the following charts illustrate the typical course sequence for this program in both quarters and semesters. Students should consult their academic advisers with questions regarding planning and course selection.
