College Level Degree Programs Offer Unique Experience

By Jason White Subscribe to RSS | July 30th 2012 | Views:

Earning a university or college degree is a proud moment. For those who are looking to earn such a degree while gaining a more hands-on experience, typically found at college level, fret not. Centennial College offers two technology-based degree programs suited just for you.

The first such college program at Centennial College is Software Systems Design, which is the only of its kind in the province and has a unique emphasis on system design, a blend of technology and business subjects as well as industry placement. Students of this college program specialize in mobile application development or service oriented architecture and cloud computing. As such, they are prepared for areas such as software development, software engineering, systems analysis, business analysis, web application development and more.

The second college program at Centennial College that results in a degree is Computer and Communication Networks. Thanks to a unique blend of technology and business subjects that offers an innovative balance between the practical and the theoretical backgrounds for which employers are looking, students can go on to find employment as Project Management Analysts, IT program managers, Technician Account Managers, Business Account Managers and much more.

Although these programs are technically the only degree programs that are completely solely at Centennial College, the institution also offers the opportunity for students to split their post-secondary experience between college and university studies. That's because of the college's agreements with Ryerson University and University of Toronto. With Ryerson, students can participate in a Bachelor of Science Nursing program. Meanwhile, the college degree programs offered in collaboration with UofT include: Applied Microbiology, Environmental Science and Technology, Journalism, New Media Studies and Paramedicine. Lastly, there is a Bridging To Software Systems Design offering that makes it possible to complete the Software System Design (SSD) degree in two years, while allowing students to keep a full-time job if they have a diploma in software and are working in the field.

Attending a degree programs at college level can be advantageous as it still entails studying via a college structure that includes a focus on practical skills and theoretical background. Additionally, these college programs are delivered in small classrooms, which allows for more peer-to-peer interaction and networking with professors. Thanks to a limited number of students in each class, instructors get to know their students, which make for a more beneficial learning experience. Lastly, as previously mentioned, degree programs at college also offer a hands-on approach that allows students to gain skills they need before graduating and entering their chosen field. Centennial's college degrees meet rigorous Ontario Ministry standards (provincial standards).
