Centennial College Programs - Opt For Suitable Course And Make A Mark In Your Career Photo by Gene Haskell

I took Bachelor of Applied Information Sciences – Computer and Communication Networks at Centennial College, Toronto. I think it’s a great program as it offers a unique balance of technology and business subjects while rightly blending the theory and practical.

The teachers are very knowledgeable and are always ready to help students. Moreover, the classes are extremely hands-on. The laboratories are specially engineered for the curriculum and are equipped with all modern facilities, including cellular networks, VoIP, wireless broadband and advanced routing and switching. In addition to this, the program offers excellent employment prospects.

Choosing Centennial was an informed decision and I’m proud of my choice. As I was really serious about my career in computer and communication networking, I took really long to make this decision. I visited numerous colleges and collected information on similar programs. I came to find out that Centennial is the only post-secondary college in the province of Ontario to offer a bachelor’s degree program in this discipline. Moreover, it has been selected by the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities to deliver this program to meet the critical need for networking professionals in Canada.

However, this was not the only consideration. I also checked out Centennial student reviews about this program and to my surprise a majority of students recommended this program. Moreover, they felt career-ready even months before graduating. They seemed really excited about their college life.

Another consideration was the availability of co-op work term. In today’s fiercely competitive business world, it is not sufficient to have theoretical knowledge. Employers are keen on hiring graduates who also have some practical hands-on experience. This co-op work term allows you to put your learning into practice and become career ready even before you are a graduate. I think this is the biggest plus point of enrolling in this program.

Apart from this, the college also allows you to apply your academic credits towards higher studies at the university. You may be eligible to participate in an articulated program with selected universities, institutes and professional associations on successful completion of the course. The college’s educational partners for this program are Athabasca University, AB, Canada and Griffith University, Australia and Southern New Hemisphere University, USA.

Another important feature of this program is that it gives you an opportunity to become a teacher. The college has collaborated with York University to offer a Concurrent Bachelor of Education program. You can take this opportunity to receive two degrees in six years, a four-year Bachelor degree in Applied Information Sciences and a Bachelor in Technological Education.

On the whole, the program is worth considering. I’m enjoying every bit of my college life at Centennial, without compromising on anything. I recommend this program to everyone who are considering  a career in this field.
