Computer Engineering Technician/Technology

Become a creative problem-solver with extremely marketable skills.

Gain hands-on experience and a problem-solving approach to computer engineering technology.

Develop your computer engineering skills

Develop high-level programming and computer engineering skills that translate directly to the workplace and are in high demand among employers. During second year Technology you can apply to join paid co-op work terms. Completing three of these terms will qualify you for a co-op Technology diploma.

Fundamental principles to advanced concepts

Sheridan's Computer Engineering program places more emphasis on fundamental math and engineering principles than most computer engineering colleges. Second- and third-year courses focus on advanced computer engineering concepts, ranging from software development to embedded systems design.

Professional affiliations and more

When you graduate from Sheridan's Computer Engineering Technician/Technology program, you'll have completed all the academic requirements for professional certification with the Ontario Association of Certified Engineering Technicians and Technologists (OACETT). Additional requirements for certification exist and are established by OACETT.

Additional information

Innovation is the rule in computer engineering technology, and it's the hallmark of the computer engineering diploma program at Sheridan.

We provide hands-on experience and a problem-solving approach to computer engineering technology, teaching students to find creative, outside-the-box solutions to real-world computer engineering problems.

You'll learn to:

  • Design, implement, and maintain the architecture for computer systems and networks.
  • Create process control, data acquisition and data management solutions.
  • Integrate networking technologies with information systems.
  • Work with micro-controllers, wireless systems and other consumer-product technologies.
  • Design and manage information servers.

Sheridan's Computer Engineering program employs mobile computing, so you'll have 24/7 access to lecture notes and other subject material, on campus and off. After graduation, students can apply for entry to Sheridan's Bachelor of Applied Information Sciences (BAISc) (Information Systems Security) program after completing a bridging program.

Computer Engineering Technician/Technology courses are held at the Davis Campus in Brampton, Ontario.
