“Fanshawe’s School of IT Computer Systems Technology program provided me with the fundamentals of learning different technologies and by the end of the program, turned it into an in-depth level of knowledge. All of this while also being able to get hands-on experience with current technology. When I graduated, I felt 100% prepared to start my career. In fact, about a week after my last exam, I was offered an in-field position!”
