Computer Engineering Technology

Integrate hardware and software to create cutting-edge solutions.

For the Winter 2021 semester, this program will be delivered through a hybrid model that combines remote and in-person learning. View delivery modes for all programs.

Learn advanced programming and computer engineering skills through theoretical studies, hands-on learning and co-op opportunities.

Earn a computer engineering technology credential employers value

Stand out from the field as a computer engineering technologist! Sheridan’s advanced diploma program builds on the two-year Computer Engineering Technician diploma by teaching you how to integrate software and hardware components. When you graduate, you’ll know how to design, build, test, implement and maintain embedded devices, computer applications and network systems.

Demonstrate your skills through a capstone project and co-op

Prove yourself to employers before you graduate! In your third year of studies, you’ll put your expertise to work in a capstone project that will be showcased to industry. You’ll also have the option of a three-term co-op placement, allowing you to graduate with one year of work experience. Some of our past students have secured employment as a result of co-op participation.

Work towards your degree or other certifications

When you graduate, you’ll have completed all academic requirements for professional certification with the Ontario Association of Certified Engineering Technicians and Technologists. You may also be able to transfer into the third year of degree programs at various universities and colleges, including Sheridan’s engineering and applied computing degrees (some bridge courses may be required).

Explore your future classroom

As a student in Sheridan’s Computer Engineering Technology advanced diploma program, you’ll work in labs designed to imitate the real-world workplace. Want a preview? Take a virtual tour of our state-of-the-art Centre for Advanced Manufacturing and Design.
