Program Information

School:Seneca College
Degree:Diploma; Co-op
Field of Study:Computer Engineering Technology/Technician
Description:Seneca’s Computer Engineering Technology program provides you with a sound interdisciplinary foundation in electronics and communications systems, as well as computer hardware, software and programming, and networking. ECET supports strong ties with major companies in Information and Engineering Technology, including Microsoft, Redhat, Rogers, Altera, and Agilent. These linkages are critical to providing pathways for you to gain exposure to current practices in Computer Engineering Technology, and also offer opportunities that can lead to key industry certifications such as CCNA, A+, Network+, and MCSE. As a graduate, your knowledge of both relevant equipment and its use will enhance your career opportunities in the computer and information processing fields.

All Computer Engineering Technology students who meet the requirements are eligible to apply for co–operative education work terms. Students may apply to co–op as early as semester two. After completion of the third academic semester, you'll have the opportunity to begin your first work term with co–operative employers in a position related to your field of study. The final two work–terms alternate with the three remaining semesters. This co– operative program allows you to gain valuable work–related experience, develop an effective job search strategy and to establish employer contacts – useful when seeking permanent employment. Students in the co–op option will take CPP100 (Co–op Professional Practice) in the semester preceding their first work–term and CPP 200 in the semester following their first work–term. Students must successfully complete CPP100, CPP200 and at least 2 co–op work–terms to graduate from the co–op option. Please see website for further information.
