We’ve brought together technology experts from various ICT sectors and codesigned a program that can create the next generation of software developers, cybersecurity specialists and data scientists. Beginning in fall 2023, the digital technologies program will be an extraordinary first for Canada to build its tech sector. Enrolled students will work while simultaneously earning a bachelor of applied science degree. As a scalable model, this first integrated program has the potential to address the national tech skills shortage and regain footing we’ve lost in the global digital economy.
