The Computer Technology (CT) program has been developed to provide training in the principles underlying the design of modern computer systems. Computer engineering students will study concepts in computer science, engineering and mathematics. By combining these three fields, computer engineers are able to solve hardware problems and create state-of-the-art machines that can handle the many tasks computers perform. Our School of Computing, Mathematics and Digital Technology is a vibrant community of staff and students, which prides itself on internal and external collaboration.

Our program features an optional, paid work placement directly related to your program of study. The work experience is designed to enable you to apply your skills and knowledge in an actual work environment, as well as enhance your employability upon graduation. The work experience occurs after the completion of Semester 4, for a minimum of 400 hours. Humber provides a range of services to support student success including working with business, industry and government to identify employment opportunities.

The definition of computer technology is the design and construction of computers to better help people at work, school, home, etc. Visit the ‘Reilly Bookstore for books on technology, programming, developer resources, certification guides, and more. We have a rolling plan of replacement for both hardware and software to ensure the School keeps up with developments in the world of computing and technology.

The world today is drowning in data. There is a treasure trove of valuable and underutilized insights that can be gleaned from information companies and people leave behind on the internet – our ‘digital breadcrumbs’ – from job postings, to online news, social media, online ad spend, patent applications and more. In an array of well-equipped facilities, students in Computer, Electrical, and Software Engineering work together with their Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering classmates on capstone projects and other cutting-edge multidisciplinary efforts such as autonomous aerial vehicles and other types of robotic¬†systems.

Not only are graduates with computer-related degrees in demand, they are well compensated. According to the National Association of Colleges and Employers, among the 10 top-paying majors for 2013-14 were computer science, which ranked second at $67,300 annually, computer engineering fourth at $66,600, and electrical engineering seventh at $62,300. Students who successfully complete the certificate program requirements will be eligible for a Certificate in Computer Systems Technology. If you meet these requirements, please apply to graduate.
