O que eu aprenderei?

As the Information Technology (IT) sector continues to grow in Toronto and our industry partners report skills shortages, George Brown College is helping to meet employer demand by educating IT professionals who understand all aspects of computer systems. Our two-year Computer Systems Technician program provides students with a broad and in-depth technical base, through courses in the high-demand areas of system support, network administration and web technologies. The curriculum prepares graduates with the strong administration, troubleshooting and design skills they need for careers in IT.


The graduate has reliably demonstrated the ability to:

Analyze and resolve information technology problems through the application of systematic approaches and diagnostic tools.

Support the implementation and administration of computer systems.

Support the implementation and administration of networking solutions.

Install, configure, troubleshoot, maintain, and upgrade components of computer systems.

Install, configure, troubleshoot, maintain, and upgrade components of networks.

Use a variety of scripting tools and languages to automate routine tasks.

Apply knowledge of security issues to the implementation of information technology solutions.

Provide efficient and effective technical support to clients in a manner that promotes safe computing practices and reduces the risk of the issue recurring.

Conform to workplace expectations found in information technology (IT) environments.

Contribute to the successful completion of the project applying the project management principles in use.


Computer System Technicians establish, operate, maintain and co-ordinate the use of local and wide area networks (LANs and WANs), software services and related computer equipment. They set up and maintain Internet and Intranet websites and web-server technologies, and monitor and optimize network connectivity and performance. They are employed in Information Technology units throughout the private and public sectors. Supervisors of Computer Network Technicians are included in this group.


Graduates can provide client support and network technical support in a wide variety of industries. Opportunities exist in companies that provide computer support services to other businesses, and in organizations that specialize in the sale and installation of computer systems and networks. Graduates may also find employment working directly with business clients, providing training services and ongoing support to assist them in using computer applications effectively.

The curriculum also prepares students to, after graduating from the program, write several of the examinations leading to industry certification in Network Administration and Support.


Graduates may continue directly into the third year of the Computer Systems Technology program (T147), and earn an Ontario College Advanced Diploma in two additional semesters.

Students who successfully complete this program may qualify for entry into university degree programs. This includes credit towards the Athabasca University BSc-CIS (PD).


Opportunities to receive transfer credits toward further study to attain a degree are available.
