Overview

As the IT industry is on track to reach over $5 trillion, individuals with knowledge and aptitude for troubleshooting networks, programming platforms & operating systems will be in high demand.

Montreal College of Information Technology aims to prepare students in all aspects of software development and maintenance, troubleshooting Networks/systems to design and code with widely used programming language like JavaScript, Python .Net along with the integration of DevOPs best practices. This will give you a solid grip to use DevOps to measure metrics and gauge engineering performance though out the product life cycles.

According to Accelerate State of DevOps report, 31,000 professionals worldwide have already adopted DevOps practices. A major part of the Diploma will emphasize DevOps principles and practices such as, continuous integration, deployment automation, infrastructure as code and continuous improvement among the development teams.

Followed up with the development phase, the program will extend to prepare students with networking skills such as installation, configuration and managing various operating
systems including Microsoft servers, different distributions of Linux supported by virtualization tools and network infrastructure, supporting data and network security.

MCIT’S goal is to keep the program and curriculum current and relevant up to the industry standard so that you have the knowledge and skills to work in a cutting-edge high-tech sector.

COURSE OUTLINE

A.E.C. Computer Science Technician LEA.D9 - (Programmer Analyst)

To give students a sound start, they are introduced to a broad and robust understanding of computer science and programming which will help them think algorithmic-ally and solve problems efficiently. This will also, give them the overview of computer hardware, software, operating system and how to navigate through the network infrastructure.

As knowledge of database is one of the important skills for any programmer, irrespective of technology, framework and domain, in the module you will learn how to create SQL queries and different types of joints. You will also learn different database types and its functionality which will enhance your data analytics skills with real -world data science exercises.

According to the TIOBE Index, Python is the most popular programming language in the field of software development and analytics. In this module you will learn the fundamental programming structures and how to use OOP features like encapsulation, inheritance, interfaces, overloading, overriding and Polymorphism. In the end you will have a solid grip of Python concepts from the basics to more in-depth understanding of its logic.

This course will give you the basic background, terminology and fundamental concepts that you need to understand in order to build a full stack web and enterprise application. This program will make you familiar with technologies involved in a web application, starting with the user interface and development. Unterstanding Bootstrap will help you to build dynamic web pages using JavaScript and jQuery. Overall the module will prepare you to take up developer roles in top notch enterprises.

In this module you will continually refine a fully functional full-stack web application as we progress to the back-end aspect of development. By using the most demanding programming language Phyton, you will be able to Develop framework-based applications for database interaction such as MVC - e.g. Django | persistence - e.g. | Testing - e.g.

In this module you will be exposed to the advanced programming techniques such as - Microservices, loosely coupled deployable architecture meant for small & medium businesses, Webservices(REST API)to exchange data between systems.During the development phase you will learn to solve recurring software issues by applying Design patterns & Design principles.

Understand DevOps trends like serverless computing, Machine learning, FaaS, DevOps Roles like Release manager, Automation Architect, Principles & Practices, Version Controlling using Remote repositories (Git, Bitbucket) Agile Methodology. In the end, you will have the overall knowledge of various methodologies and tools an organization can adopt for DevOps best practise and principles

This will help you understand the Automation process by selecting a Test Tool to, define the scope, plan and execute through Continuous Integration(using Jenkins). After this you will follow through with Continuous Delivery(Principles of CD, Leading CD practices)with Selenium.

Here you will learn to manage Containers that can be managed like applications, which can control processes, managed by the host operating system’s - kernel. This is managed through Containerization with the help of Docker Ecosystem & Networking Change - Release automation.

You will learn to monitor the performance, capacity, and maintenance of Linux and Windows applications across multiple server spaces and domains. This course will also help you to get hands on with remote offices, and the cloud Infrastructure through Virtual environment installation/Configuration management(using Ansible) Cloud Computing(DevOps & Cloud - Google Cloud/Microsoft Azure/AWS) Continuous Monitoring of the systems(using Nagios)

Getting the right skills and make it marketable to the employer is one of the important aspects of finding jobs. In this part of the program, you would be able to develop the habits and attitudes to perform effectively in the job market. Also, you will get the skills to develop a practical approach for engaging your LinkedIn network. Overall the module will give you the framework for success in creating a fulfilling professional life through Cover Letter, CV and social media job functions, search tools and strategies and interview skills.

At the end of the program,students complete a real-time, industrially-simulated project which will equip them with tools and strategies to be applied in structured learning experiences in programming as well as a benchmark for the learning objectives

Students will also complete a real-time, industrially-simulated project in networking and technical support.
