Humber’s Computer Engineering Technology advanced diploma program trains you to develop and design the cutting-edge technologies that propel most businesses and governments around the world.
You will be taught by industry experts, in small classes, skills in hardware and software, electronics and networking, plus a variety of systems. As well, you will learn to upgrade and incorporate new technological advances into existing systems.
The curriculum is designed with industry collaboration, ensuring you are learning the skills that companies require. The program features courses in programming; electronics; networks set up and programming; Linux/Ubuntu installation and configuration; and the network services that lay the groundwork to build software skills and expertise in data communications, networking and security. You’ll develop, install and operate computer embedded and network systems; work on various network protocols and microcontrollers; and learn to refine and develop current applications.
In your final year, you will focus on integrating all your skills by examining the inner workings of networks using different application programming interfaces (APIs) to build network applications, comparing different computer architectures and completing a major project using an embedded system.Courses Program Standards
Upon successful completion of the program, a graduate will:
Identify, analyze, design, develop, implement, verify and document the requirements for a computing environment.
Diagnose, troubleshoot, document and monitor technical problems using appropriate methodologies and tools.
Analyze, design, implement and maintain secure computing environments.
Analyze, develop and maintain robust computing system solutions through validation testing and industry best practices.
Communicate and collaborate with team members and stakeholders to ensure effective working relationship.
Select and apply strategies for personal and professional development to enhance work performance.
Apply project management principles and tools when responding to requirements and monitoring projects within a computing environment.
Adhere to ethical, social media, legal, regulatory and economic requirements and/or principles in the development and management of the computing solutions and systems.
Investigate emerging trends to respond to technical challenges.
Integrate multiple software and hardware components using appropriate systems, methodologies, and connection protocols.
Analyze, plan, design, develop, test, and implement computing devices and networked systems (software or hardware) in accordance with appropriate functional requirements and standards.
Apply principles of digital and analog circuits to design, implement, and troubleshoot computing devices, including embedded components and systems.
Design, build, test, implement, and maintain embedded (including IoT*) devices and applications.
Develop, test and maintain software applications for systems integration.
This program offers a co-op option. Co-op work terms enable you to apply your skills and knowledge in a work environment and gain valuable, practical experience related to your program of study. You will learn new skills, learn about the world of work and meet people in your profession. The current Work Placement Program will continue for the students who started the program before Fall 2019.
For students who are accepted into the program, three co-op work terms will take place. The first four-month work term is between Semesters 3 and 4, and then two consecutive four-month work terms between Semesters 4 and 5. There are limited spaces in the co-op option. Therefore, you will apply for the co-op option during Semester 1 and be informed of the process by which to apply. While co-op work opportunities are not guaranteed, as students are in a competitive job placement market, participating students will receive a wide range of services to help them find a co-op opportunity.
In partnership with FIRST Robotics Canada
March 8 to 10, 2019
Combining the excitement of sport with the rigors of science and technology, the FIRST Robotics Competition is the ultimate sport for the mind.
Train for a career making computer hardware and software better, faster and cheaper.
This is a challenging industry, as companies hire skilled computer engineers to stay ahead of ever-changing consumer demand. According to the Canadian government’s Working in Canada website, there is a “high concentration of technology and research institutes” in the Toronto area. The same report says that employers are interested in recruiting people who have technology-specific and practical working experience.
Analytical and design skills are at the forefront of this ever-evolving career. Hardware- and software-integrated system implementations, testing, maintenance and the need for continuous improvement and upgrading keep graduates at the top of their game. Graduates work for technology companies, organizations and government departments that need computer engineers, and many more.
