Overview

Centennial College’s Health Informatics Technology (Fast-Track) program will admit you into Semester 3 of the three-year advanced diploma offering so you can receive the credential in four semesters if you’re a qualified college or university graduate with a background in software.

This college health technology program will focus on incorporating software engineering and healthcare systems as you’ll learn to design, develop, modify and test software for healthcare applications.

As a graduate of this School of Engineering Technology and Applied Science program, you’ll be able to analyze and model data, develop health care databases and apply modern software development methodologies. You’ll also have the know-how to use health informatics methods and software tools for hospitals, health care agencies and public health departments.

This will be achieved through the program’s coursework, including object-oriented software design methodologies, user-oriented interface design, healthcare information systems structure, telehealth, data security and privacy in healthcare systems. It will also highlight technologies such as C#, Java, Python, Oracle, MS-SQL Server, Microsoft’s ASP.NET Core, data warehousing and mining, and BI tools in health care systems.

Co-op Option

The co-op option will allow you to gain hands-on experience while you complete two co-op work terms as an employee in the field. This experience not only allows you to put classroom learning into practice but will also provide valuable contacts for your future career.

To participate in this co-op option, you must complete an application process in the first semester. If academically qualified, you may be admitted to the co-op program.

When you graduate, your diploma will highlight the co-op credential.
