O que eu aprenderei?

This joint Durham College and Ontario Tech University (Ontario Tech) diploma-to-degree program will enable you to earn both credentials in only four years. Experience the best of both learning environments while on the journey to a rewarding career in the computer systems technician field.

In today’s world of personal computers, networking and applications, computer systems technicians are in high demand. After acquiring the expertise required to build, maintain and repair the latest in technology, you will test-drive new ideas and restore old favourites to working order. You will learn in state-of-the-art labs from professors who are connected to industry. This program is built on partnerships with some of the most influential names in networking today, including Cisco, IBM and Microsoft.

This program was created by Durham College and Ontario Tech for individuals who plan to take Ontario Tech’s Bachelor of Information Technology (Hons) degree program, majoring in Networking and IT Security. The bridging courses required for admission to the degree program are embedded in the curriculum and if you achieve a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.5 in each semester of your Durham College courses and no grade below C in your Ontario Tech courses, you can apply directly to the third year of the degree program. In order to participate in this program, you are required to maintain a cumulative grade point average of 3.5 and complete an application to Ontario Tech in the first semester. The Ontario Tech embedded courses are flexible and subject to change by Ontario Tech. Academic planning assistance will be offered to you by a student advisor representative.

As a student participating in this program, you will be registered at Durham College and at Ontario Tech. Ontario Tech offers classes in the evenings and the annual calendars including reading week are generally different. Students are expected to attend all classes that are scheduled. In addition the two institutions use different learning management systems.

This program provides students with the option of proceeding in second year with the college-only curriculum to complete the standard two-year Computer Systems Technician diploma, or proceeding to complete the two-year University Transfer, which will include five university credits. Students who choose to complete the standard college diploma will be required to take one additional General Education elective.

This unique pathway is available on a shared campus with exposure to college and university faculty, information and opportunities. Students can transfer to the Computer Programmer, Computer Programmer Analyst, or Computer Systems Technology programs at DC after the first semester; leave after first year with a Computer Foundations certificate; or leave after second year with a Computer Systems Technician diploma. Students who choose to return to complete the Computer Systems Technology program would receive advanced standing.
