Our Program

Humber’s Information Technology Solutions graduate certificate program is carefully designed to support students without an information technology (IT) background. Our program offers an introductory first semester in software development and computer programming skills, which prepares students to engage in advanced study specializing in database development or enterprise software development (.NET/Java) in subsequent semesters of study. This program provides the concepts, skills and knowledge required to work as software developers in DBAS for Oracle and SQL Server.

Working on team projects and individually, you will create commercial applications that apply theories to the development of database-driven programming, content management, secure front-end presentations, electronic data interchange and interactive web-based servers. Project management and presentation skills are a key component of the program.

Humber also offers an Information Technology Solutions (Enterprise Development Profile) program 1096D.

You will select your area of specialization in either the Database Development Profile 1096D or Enterprise Development Profile 1096S upon successful completion of the first semester. Guidance on the distinctions between these choices will be provided to aid with your decision.

The Humber Advantage

Usability Lab

The Usability Lab is a new facility for students in the School of Media Studies & Information Technology at Humber College. This “Live Lab” is a full-fledged usability lab where content creators can capture & assess the interaction between user and design.

This Usability Lab is specialized, in that it was purposefully built for usability studies to ensure that the environment does not interfere with the testing. Designed with flexibility at its core, it has been equipped with a broad variety of technology, supporting usability testing at many different levels of sophistication.

What makes this lab unique is the fact that it is mobile. This one-of-a-kind usability lab can be delivered to those who wish to use and evaluate our designs, as well as their own. For our students, they can participate in, and lead experiments that will truly test the designs they have developed, to make sure they work in the manner they have been designed to work.
