A profession in the technical field may be a challenging feat, which is a good thing to keep your career exciting. However, starting it may be difficult and students will need extra studies to reach the levels they desire to complete specialized programs. Before enrolling in one of the diploma programs in the School of Engineering Technology and Applied Science, take a foundations program to enhance your learning.

Technology Foundations is the preliminary program for studies in various areas in Applied Biological and Environmental Sciences (ABES), Information and Communication Engineering Technology (ICET), and Advanced Manufacturing and Automation Technology (AMAT). It is broken into three programs, one for each umbrella area of studies. With only two-semester of studies, students learn mathematics, physics, and engineering principles & technical applications for ABES, ICET, or AMAT.

Students can easily transfer to Centennial’s diploma programs. Those enrolled in the Technology Foundations (AMAT) program can enter in mechanical engineering, energy systems engineering, electro-mechanical engineering, and electrical engineering programs. For the Technology Foundations (ABES) students, they can specialize in biotechnology, architecture, food science, medical laboratory, and environmental technology programs. Lastly, the Technology Foundations (ICET) program offers entrance to computer systems, electronics engineering, software engineering, health informatics technology, and biomedical engineering.
