Integrate hardware and software to create cutting-edge solutions.
Earn a computer engineering technology credential employers value
Stand out from the field as a computer engineering technologist! Sheridan’s advanced diploma program builds on the two-year Computer Engineering Technician diploma by teaching you how to integrate software and hardware components. When you graduate, you’ll know how to design, build, test, implement and maintain embedded devices, computer applications and network systems.
Demonstrate your skills through a capstone project and co-op
Prove yourself to employers before you graduate! In your third year of studies, you’ll put your expertise to work in a capstone project that will be showcased to industry. You’ll also have the option of a three-term co-op placement, allowing you to graduate with one year of work experience. Some of our past students have secured employment as a result of co-op participation.
Work towards your degree or other certifications
When you graduate, you’ll have completed all academic requirements for professional certification with the Ontario Association of Certified Engineering Technicians and Technologists. You may also be able to transfer into the third year of degree programs at various universities and colleges, including Sheridan’s engineering and applied computing degrees (some bridge courses may be required).

Ontario Secondary School Diploma or equivalent, including these required courses:
- One English, Grade 12 (ENG4C or ENG4U)
- Grade 12 Mathematics for College Technology (MCT4C) or Grade 11 Functions (MCF3M) or Grade 11 Functions and Relations (MCR3U) or any Grade 12 (U) Mathematics
Applicants who do not meet the admission requirements will be invited to complete pre-admission tests in mathematics and English. Applicants asked to take the test are considered for admission to Term 1 contingent on receiving a minimum grade of 60% in both the pre-admission mathematics/English tests.
Applicants lacking the Mathematics admission requirement for this program may wish to upgrade their Mathematics prior to application. For upgrading information, please contact us.
Applicants may also consider applying to our Technology Fundamentals program. Successful completion of this program will meet the Mathematics requirement and will provide a broader sense of the Science and Technology fields.
Eligible applicants will be selected on the basis of their previous academic achievement (the average of their six highest senior-level credits, including required courses), and/or results of pre-admission testing.
Applicants who do not meet the admission requirements for this program will be assessed and advised individually and may be considered for other, related programs.
English Language Proficiency
All applicants whose first language is not English must meet Sheridan’s English proficiency requirements.
Computer engineering technology skills are extremely marketable across many industries. Sheridan graduates are particularly well-qualified for jobs that involve programmable controllers, data acquisition systems, embedded controllers and electronic instrumentation.
Potential fields of work include:
- Computer Engineering Technologist
- Computer Network Technologist
- Software Developer
- Embedded System Developer
- Network Administrator
- Product Development Technologist
- Hardware/Software Support Technologist
- Hardware/Software Sales Representative
Students in this program may apply to the co-op program during their second academic semester. Enrolment in the co-op program is limited through an additional co-op application process that takes place at the end of the first year. Students in the co-op program are eligible to complete three co-op work terms prior to graduation. The program-specific academic standard required for participation in co-op can be found here: Academic Standards for Co-op and Internship.
Co-operative Education is a form of work-integrated learning that links classroom learning with paid or unpaid work experience within a professional environment. Co-op work terms are related specifically to the academic studies of each student. The work terms provide an opportunity to learn by doing. You’ll apply theory to practice, develop a meaningful view of the working world, and cultivate an awareness of yourself as a professional.
Students receive in-class and 1-on-1 career education support to help prepare for the work term. The Co-op component is delivered by Sheridan’s Co-operative Education Office, which facilitates over 1,800 co-op and internship work terms per year Sheridan-wide.
