Overview

Advanced Diploma in Computer Programming Analysis

The CPA program follows an experiential learning approach to education by offering courses that parallel the software development practices used in the modern workplace. 

Throughout the program CPA, students apply concepts learned in the classroom to solve programming problems. They learn to work in project teams, in which they design, develop, and test larger-scale applications. 

After gaining programming and problem-solving skills, students experience real-world work environments by participating in the third-year work placement program.

The CPA program is a three-year program in which students learn a wide variety of skills, ranging from basic programming practices, problem-solving, software design, critical thinking and application development.
