Information Technology


Thumbnail description

The information Communication Technologies (ICT) pathway includes computer science and web design courses. Students learn how to be a technology creator, rather than a technology user. Students learn the technical and professional skills applicable to any business and industry that relies on computer networks and software for daily operation. The creativity and problem solving skills learned in the ICT pathway courses have applications in almost every career and are useful in college and university coursework. Students learn how to be a technology creator, rather than a technology user.
