With the six-semester Computer Engineering Technology program, you can expand your repertoire of skills and knowledge to open up interesting and rewarding career opportunities.

Program Highlights

Beyond the technician level training, computer engineering technologists add analysis, design, project management and enhanced applied technology skills. You'll apply this knowledge to the analysis and design of complex computer systems and networks. You will also develop more self-sufficiency and better critical thinking skills.

You'll have open access beyond classroom time to our lab facilities - time to explore and learn, hands-on. Your ability to work effectively as a member of a technical team will also be further developed through course studies and a full-semester team-based project.

  • Course work includes preparation for industry certification exams such as A+ and Cisco Networking.
  • This program has recently received National Accreditation with the Canadian Technology Accreditation Board. Graduates are recognized by the Ontario Association of Certified Engineering Technicians and Technologists (OACETT) as meeting all the academic requirements for certification in the Certified Engineering Technologist (CET) category.

Configure Your Future

When you graduate from this program, you can also choose to pursue a Computing degree. Graduate and valedictorian Richard Branch states that "Overall, the program was intense but it was well-structured and very enjoyable. It was a challenge, but a very fun challenge." Richard is now pursuing his Bachelor of Science (Honours) in Computing Systems at Trent University. Through the Fleming/Trent transfer agreement, he earned significant credit for his Fleming courses.

Why Choose Fleming

Through our relationships with partners and industry leaders, we're able to assist our grads to obtain satisfying careers in the field upon graduation.

Work Experience: Applied Projects at Fleming

In your final semester you will work on an intensive team project. Each member of the team will contribute specialized knowledge learned in his or her program of study to solve a real-world technological problem posed by a sponsoring business or organization. This project will enhance problem-solving skills, applied industry knowledge, and the ability to work as part of an engineering/development team. You'll also learn critical workplace skills such as time management, how to map a critical path, and presentation skills. Since you may be working on sophisticated developmental or research based work, sponsors will often use the project as a testing ground and recruitment opportunity.

Is this You?

This program and career require:

  • curiosity about how computers work
  • ability to explain computing issues to others
  • self-motivation
  • ability to be a team player
  • excellent listening skills
  • enjoy working with people

Career Opportunities

Graduates of this program have found positions as members of research and development teams composed of engineers, technologists, and technicians. In addition, many have found positions as field service or customer representatives for equipment suppliers. Because of their more comprehensive education, graduates often eventually assume administrative responsibilities within their organizations. Your broad-based, transferrable skills will be to your benefit. For example, Robert Half Technology, the leading resource on IT hiring and employment trends, reports in its recent Salary Guide that the long-range outlook for IT professionals is strong, and technology's hottest jobs include network systems and data communications analysts, network and computer systems administrators, and computer systems analysts. Sample job titles include:

  • embedded software developer
  • computer operations supervisor
  • computer systems analyst
  • server administrator
  • network administrator
  • LAN manager

Graduates are in very high demand, with starting salaries in the $35,000 to $40,000 range.
