Computer Engineering Technician

The Computer Technology (CT) program has been developed to provide training in the principles underlying the design of modern computer systems. ABCya’s award-winning Preschool computer games and apps are conceived and realized under the direction of a certified technology education teacher, and have been trusted by parents and teachers for ten years. Computer Games Development concentrates on approaches and technologies for the design and implementation of intelligent games. Conestoga pathways enable students to build on their academic achievements in order to earn a degree or additional credential. Pathways are formed through agreements between Conestoga programs or partner institutions. View the transfer agreement opportunities for this program.

A commercial version of Alan Turing’s Pilot ACE, called DEUCE—the Digital Electronic Universal Computing Engine – is used mostly for science and engineering problems and a few commercial applications. Over 30 were completed, including one delivered to Australia. Educational technology itself as an educational subject; such courses may be called “Computer Studies” or “Information and communications technology (ICT)”. An educational technologist is someone who is trained in the field of educational technology.

With a masters in information security from UAT, students become leaders in their field and work with those at the top of their craft. UAT’s Cyber Security degree aligns the most forward-looking theory with clear industry standards and guidelines to optimize career success. Curriculum for the Masters in information security includes everything from Evolutionary and Adaptive Systems to Security Assessment Methodology.

The Computer Engineering Technology (CET) program provides students with the knowledge and skills necessary for computer industry positions that address both computer hardware and software, with special emphasis on electronics. Students are prepared for entry-level positions that may involve the testing, troubleshooting, repairing or installation of a variety of computer and networked systems. Other positions may include assisting engineers in the design and building of computer systems. Graduates of this program are well-prepared to continue their education in Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering Technology programs.

Students and instructors in a full-time science, technology, engineering or mathematics program are entitled to a number of additional Microsoft software packages through Conestoga’s Microsoft Partner Agreement. In order to be eligible for graduation, students who are not completing the co-op must complete the diploma program requirements within three years of entering the program. Those who graduate with a co-op designation have five years to complete the program.
