Work Practicum

The CDCA program features an 8-week work practicum placement in the computer industry to provide students with relevant practical experience. The placement enables students to apply the skills learned in the classroom, complete on-the-job procedures, and establish a valuable network.

MITT does not guarantee practicum placements and, in such situations, the Institute will explore alternative options for program completion with a student.
