About the Program

This one-year graduate certificate will teach you how to design, test and implement databases on a variety of operating platforms. You will also learn how to create database computer applications using web and object-oriented languages. This program offers an optional work term(s) for those who meet all academic requirements.

Work Experience

Optional Work Term

Students meeting all academic requirements may have the opportunity to complete an optional work term(s) in a formal work environment. The work term(s) is similar in length to an academic semester and typically involves full-time work hours that may be paid or unpaid. In programs with limited work term opportunities, additional academic requirements and a passing grade on a communication assessment may be required for eligibility. Eligibility for participation does not guarantee a work position will be secured. Additional fees are required for those participating in the optional work term stream regardless of success in securing a work position.
