Computer Science - Administrative Data Processing
DEC | 420.AA
DEC - Business & Technologies | 420.AA | Computer Science - Administrative Data Processing

The Computer Science Technology program (DEC), with the Administrative Data Processing specialization stream, trains computer technicians to locate, collect and analyze data on the information processing needs of users.

Students will learn how to achieve data modeling and data processing with the appropriate software. They will be able to write operational and efficient programs using various programming languages, and oversee network planning and implementation, allowing for the secure sharing of information.

The Data Management option allows students to acquire the skills necessary for analyzing and developing applications related to the management and use of a local network.
