The School of Applied Computing, one of five schools in the Faculty of Applied Science and Technology, offers a spectrum of 11 computer programs covering 2-year Diplomas, 3-year Advanced Diplomas, 4-year Degrees and 1-year Graduate Certificates. Most of the Applied Computing programs are offered at both the Brampton and Oakville campuses with the exception of Information Systems Security, Mobile Computing, Interactive Media Management and Game Development Advanced programming, all of which are offered at Trafalgar. Information Technology Support Services is offered at Davis.

The Programs offered through the School of Applied Computing include:

Bachelor of Computing and Network Communications – Internet Communications Technology 
Offered jointly by Sheridan and Brock University, this four-and-a-half-year program combines academic instruction in computer science with hands-on technical work in network communications — plus the chance to get paid co-op work experience. By combining theory and practice into a single package, this program offers unmatched preparation for a career in network technology, computer science and communications.

Honours Bachelor of Applied Information Sciences - Information Systems Security
The Bachelor of Applied Information Sciences (BAISc) Information Systems Security degree program features intensive hands-on education, including a three- to six-month field placement in a real-world workplace. Courses move from fundamental computer science principles to more specialized courses covering all aspects of information systems security.

Honours Bachelor of Computer Science – Mobile Computing
The Honours Bachelor of Applied Computer Science - Mobile Computing degree program features intensive hands-on education featuring opportunities to develop software, design next-generation mobile applications, implement pervasive information systems and analyze and plan wireless networks. This program fosters an entrepreneurial spirit that embraces the mobile movement and is poised to prepare tomorrow's leaders in the new age of mobility.

Information Technologies Support Services
The IT Information Technology Support Services program emphasizes hands-on learning. A large part of the program covers 'soft skills' such as customer support, team-based work, leadership, entrepreneurship and communication. Specific subject areas include: Network design and maintenance, Website design and maintenance , Call tracking and customer service, Mobile device support, Databases, Industry-standard software packages (including Microsoft Office).

Interactive Media Management
Student learn to build interactive multimedia environments from the ground up using industry best practices for interface design and interactive programming. You'll use HTML5, CSS3, Javascript, APIs and responsive design to design and build digital media, mobile web, web animation and natural user interfaces (NUI) using multi touch, gesture capture and wearable technologies.

Internet Communications Technology
Our Internet Communications Technology Program provides an in-depth emphasis on Internet Protocol engineering, more than any undergraduate program in Canada. Internet engineers specialize in communications systems and network security.  Graduates of this program will typically design, build and oversee critical Internet components.

Specific subject areas include: Internet infrastructure, architecture and security, Internet routing, design and testing, Internet telephony and wireless technology, Hacker techniques and building armored networks, analysis and problem-solving of complex networks and building of next-generation networks.  

Computer Programmer

The program emphasizes a practical, hands-on approach with an emphasis on communication, problem-solving and team building. Specific subject areas include: Java, C#, XML, and .NET, Operating systems including Linux / Unix, Object-oriented methodologies, Database design, Data communications, Advanced Web technologies, Systems analysis and design, Network configuration, Mobile phone Web-based application development. 

Graduates of this program will typically be designing, developing and implementing software solutions for a wide variety of business needs. They will likely be translating user requirements into usable software.

Computer Systems Technology – Software Engineering
In this program, you'll gain practical software engineering skills that give you a competitive edge in the job market. You'll study computer hardware (including Computer Architecture and Linux/Unix Operating System) and business practice, management and analysis. There's also a concentration on math that will provide you with a deeper understanding of software engineering principles.

Computer Systems Technology - Software Development and Network Engineering

The program emphasizes practical, real-world issues - the same computer software development and network engineering situations students encounter in the workplace. Specific subject areas include:  advanced hardware training (computer architecture, applied operating systems design, Linux/Unix, etc), software development in Java, C, C# and .NET environment, Advanced concepts such as mobile application development, security, encryption and gaming. 

Graduates of this program will typically be working with systems analysts, engineers, programmers and others to design system and to obtain information on project limitations and capabilities, performance requirements and interfaces. Furthermore, they will likely be designing, developing and modifying software systems, using scientific analysis and mathematical models to predict and measure outcome and consequences of design.

Computer Systems Technology - Systems Analyst

Systems Analyst coursework begins with thorough programming instruction across multiple platforms and environments, from cutting-edge computer systems technology such as .NET, iPhone and Blackberry to industry standards such as Java and Oracle. Specific subject areas will include design for: E-commerce, Tracking inventory, Scheduling, Security, Supply chain systems, Account management. 

Graduates of this program will typically be focused on computer systems required by companies operating in a various industry, such as financial, engineering, healthcare etc... They would be able to design both, software and hardware systems, make improvements to computer systems that work best for the different needs of each organization as well as perform cost-benefit analysis on the proposed improvements.
