Today, few organizations make any significant plans without thoroughly understanding the Information Technology (IT) implications. IT professionals are a vital part of decision-making business teams. George Brown College answers this need with its Computer Programmer Analyst program. The broad education in programming and IT analysis that it offers can provide you with a stable platform for career growth in the rapidly expanding and ever-changing world of information technology.

During the first two years of the program, you will develop the skills and techniques required for software application development and testing. The industry tells us they are looking for Computer Programmer Analysts with “the total package.” So the third year includes advanced technical skills in areas such as systems analysis and design techniques — and continues to develop communications, teamwork, and other client service skills such as needs assessment, sales, and presentation methods.

George Brown offers other distinct advantages:

  • Students are involved in project-based and experiential learning.
  • In the third year, students are introduced to the fast-growing AI and Machine Learning strategies and development.
  • Students are also exposed to mobile application development using the latest mobile devices.

*If you enroll in January, you must complete semester 2 in the summer, May to August, in the same year.

Note: In this rapidly changing industry, program improvements are being made on an ongoing basis, which may result in course changes. Changes are made in consultation with our Program Advisory Committee, which is composed of academic staff and industry representatives from small, medium-sized, and large corporations.
