This program is one of a collection of IT programs at Fanshawe College that allows students to choose a field of study and program length after being exposed to the fundamentals of the IT industry. After the first level, students can choose from programs related to systems technology and networking, programming or web development. After the second level, they can choose from a range of programs offering different specialization, duration and co-op opportunities. All of these choices are part of the Fanshawe Connect approach to learning in which concepts are explained, demonstrated, guided and applied in classes that are an integration of instruction and practice. This is done in a consistent environment provided by laptops that students own.
