Objectifs du programme

The Computer Science Technology program prepares students to practise the occupation of computer science technician in the applications development and computer network administration fields.

In the applications development field, technicians participate in the design of applications operating on different platforms and carry out development and maintenance activities. A large number and variety of applications are developed and used in nearly all industries.

In the computer network administration field, technicians participate in the design of computer networks and carry out installation, management and security activities on networks, servers and computing devices. Their duties consist of ensuring the efficient operation of Internet and intranet services associated with the network, such as the sharing of resources, communications, hosting, telephony, etc.

Technicians also provide technical support to users.

Depending on the scale of the project, the work may be carried out individually or in collaboration with various specialists: other computer technicians, analysts, network or data architecture consultants, project managers, persons responsible for quality assurance, suppliers, etc.

The work environment can vary greatly. It is often made up of cutting-edge hardware and software, and sometimes includes previous generations of components. The work therefore requires a significant ability to adapt, the continuous upgrading of knowledge, excellent reasoning skills, the application of a structured approach, flexibility and an open mind.
