Program Description

Developed with input from industry experts, our innovative apprenticeship-style technology diploma program enables you to learn the most in demand tech skills, while working in Calgary’s growing technology industry.

This 16-month technology diploma program consists of four academic terms combined with one year of paid industry work experience. You will engage in a dual training system that features 16 months of classroom instruction combined with paid on-the-job training under the watchful eyes of skilled industry mentors.  The program starts with a four-month term of full-time study.  In the second term you will work and learn alongside an industry mentor while continuing to advance your tech skills in the classroom. The curriculum will be delivered in six to 8- week modularized courses so you  can work three days per week with a tech company.
