Computer Systems Technology

As an authorized Cisco Systems Networking Academy and Microsoft IT Academy, Cambrian equips you all the in-depth technical and customer service skills needed to manage and solve the networking, security, wireless access, and VoIP needs of support teams within organizations of all sizes.

Plus, you'll study desktop multi-user operating systems, local and wide area networks, network security and management, and programming languages from faculty like Bob Vachon – one of our profs who literally helped write the Cisco Systems book on networking.

Each year, select students compete in the Ontario Technological Skills Competition. Since 2006, our students have earned 15 provincial medals and 6 national medals.
