Centre for Arts and Technology

Introduction

Centre for Arts and Technology

Centre for Arts and Technology is not your typical community college or university. The foundation was built over 30 years ago by leaders in both media training and educational excellence. The journey has been long with many different paths being bridged together – the end result is one of Canada’s leading colleges in digital arts and technical training.

Art Schools in Canada - About Centre for Arts and Technology

Today, we are recognized as one of the few multi-campus schools that continually graduate successful students in the areas of filmmaking, animation, audio engineering, fashion design, event management, interior design, photography, graphic design, and network security.

But we are more than hallways and classrooms, instructors and students. Centre for Arts and Technology is a community that is built through industry contacts and advancing technologies. It is a college that nurtures students along their educational journey, providing challenges and opportunities, mentorship and motivation, all while fostering a collaborative environment where students can reach their full potential.

It has been said by many that have walked through our doors – “you can really feel the difference”. This is one of the greatest compliments we can receive and is something we are always striving to achieve. We want to feel different because we want to be different. It’s not only what make Centre for Arts and Technology special, it’s what makes the students special.
