Nice to know. I honestly was hoping to land a job at computer programming actually. Any advices? Can i change to CPA later if it's better suited to become a programmer? Or should i finish and then transfer to a uni and get a Bsc?
You can get a job as a programmer with your current program just fine. I can program but I wouldn't want to be doing it for a living. Obv it's your life, I can only give general advice.

That's what I'm hearing. But this also makes them popular, I wouldn't be surprised to see the field become oversaturated in a few years. Everybody and their dog wants to become a programmer. It's why I recommend networking to guys who like computers but aren't enamored with programming. The work is easier and also has good pay prospects. The downside is that networking is the most boring subject I've ever seen. That's probably a big factor in why it's not as popular.

My friend took CNS with Co-op and has a government job as a deskside, making well over 65K. So I guess it's possible to make decent money from Diploma.

Hi,
I made a topic earlier about payroll @ seneca and it seems like it isn't an option (i spoke on the phone with the coordinator the other day and now i'm back to finding something worth doing).

http://www.senecacollege.ca/programs/fulltime/CTY.html

I'm thinking of applying for CTY @ seneca. The only question i have is, I literally have little to no experience or knowledge of computer at all. Will i be at a disadvantage when it comes to grasping and understanding everything? I read through a few topics and i noticed that doing the co-op is a must if i want to get a job after graduating. To anyone who is enrolled or even graduated, can you elaborate a bit more on this and confirm what must be done in order to secure a co-op? I just hope i can transfer some credits over if all goes planned!

Sorry for having 2 topics @+!

What happens if you fail every course in your first semester and what would happen after?

You may want to inquire about how your status for co-op may change.

Don't remember who to avoid, but I would highly recommend: Rahman - win213, Keith - dcn286, Andrew/Murray - ops235, Brian Douglas - win210 (not sure if he's still teaching there).

, I have read and seen many recommend CTY over CNS as its more or less the same up to second year. So I've eliminated CNS - I am left with CTY or Computer and Network Support Technician at Humber. CTY is 3 years with co-op, Humber is 2 years and looks like no co-op!

You can do CTY for 4 semesters (2 years) and take advantage of the co-op option then graduate early with a CNS. This is the route I took, along with a number of other posters on here. Here is my timeline:

Sem - 1
Sem - 2
Sem - 3
Co-op - 1
Sem - 4
Co-op - 2
Co-op - 3

Applied to switch to the CNS stream to graduate early. As you can see I did not do Sem 5 and 6 of the CTY course but at the same time, I was mindful with my courses to make sure that I have everything completed to graduate CNS by the end of Sem 4.

So what happens when you fail a course? Because im pretty sure I failed my ULI101 exam, which means I automatically fail the course.

Do they just automatically drop me from the 2nd semester courses that need ULI101 as a prerequisite?

How's the job prospect for the co-op in the IT department ?
Good amount of opportunities at the intranet or the student has to find a job by himself ?
