Graduates of the Computer Engineering Technology program are able to design, build, test and repair a computer-based system or any part of one. Their very strong electronics knowledge and skills enable them to take on many roles in industry. Their strength in hardware, mathematics and theory equips them to interface with the physical world. Because of the power of embedded processor chips, they are used to simplify (and make less expensive) most non-trivial equipment and systems. (Fuel injection and pollution control for automobiles is a classic example.) Graduates design, build and test the computer part of such systems.
The Ontario Association of Certified Engineering Technicians and Technologists (OACETT) recognizes this program as meeting all the academic requirements for certification in the Certified Engineering Technologist (CET) category. The Computer Engineering Technology program has been recognized by the Royal Canadian Navy and now qualifies for Canadian Armed Forces skill recognition. Students who graduate from this program will receive advanced standing as a Weapons Engineering Technician in the Royal Canadian Navy (subject to successful enrolment in the Canadian Armed Forces).

Conestoga cares about getting you a job. I studied computer programming and had chances to attend job fairs every month where I got to meet employers in KW (Kitchener-Waterloo) including big name startups. The instructors are all working professionals and will help you understand not just the theory but what it's like to be a programmer. I liked my two years here and would recommend it to anyone who doesn't want to do a four-year compsci degree.
