The aim of the Computerized Systems Technology program is to prepare students to practise the
occupation of computerized systems technologist.
Computerized systems technologists are employed by companies active in production, technical support
and research involving computerized systems. Although this description applies primarily to
manufacturers, computerized systems technologists can also work for consulting firms or research
laboratories. Their principal tasks are analyzing problems and situations, developing and building design
projects, writing technical documentation, programming and coding systems, conducting tests and
providing technical support.
In the exercise of their occupation, computerized systems technologists primarily use microcomputers
and computers, software, computer networks, interfaces and peripherals, electronic components, printed
circuits, circuit boards, mechanical products and components, electronic equipment, computerized
systems and technical documentation.
