Overview

Diploma - Computer Systems Technology

Computer systems technologists solve computer-related issues for businesses, government agencies, utilities, law enforcement agencies, health services providers, educational institutions and more.

It’s a career that demands a unique blend of skills—computer literacy, technical know-how and communications savvy—but also lets you specialize in areas that interest you the most, including programming, software design, mobile application programming, data communications and web design.

The two-year Computer Systems Technology diploma is available full time at Saskatchewan Polytechnic Saskatoon campus and Regina Campus, with a number of courses also available through distance and/or continuing education.

Comprehensive technical training gives you a solid foundation of theory and hands-on lab practice in:

  • designing, installing and managing local area networks
  • developing computer programs in various programming languages
  • developing interactive web pages with multimedia components
  • developing proficiency in several common computer application packages
  • installing and configuring computer hardware and software
  • performing systems analysis and design
  • programming apps for mobile devices (smart phones, tablets, etc.)
  • providing end-user technical support services
  • troubleshooting and repairing hardware problems

You’ll also learn business principles, project management and communication skills—attributes potential employers look for when hiring for IT personnel.
