Programs at St. Lawrence College are delivered using a variety of instruction modes. Courses may be offered in the classroom or lab, entirely online, or in a hybrid mode which combines classroom sessions with online learning activities. Program delivery can be run weekdays, weekends or evenings. Upon registration, each full-time student is provided a St. Lawrence College email account which is used to communicate important information about program or course events.
Student Workload: Most courses have three tests and three assignments evenly spread throughout the semester. Designing and writing programs is very time consuming and students should expect to spend up to 18 hours per week on homework.
Work Placement: In the third year, students spend 16 hours per week on the job in a business environment. Many students are employed by their work placement during the summer months preceding third year. This gives one year work experience on their resume at graduation.
Ajilon Consulting is one of the top 5 suppliers of IT professionals to the Government of Canada. Many of the Ajilon’s government clients continue to manage and maintain legacy systems to support program delivery. However, resources with the knowledge, experience and expertise of these systems are in high demand and short supply. Ajilon Consulting has partnered with St. Lawrence College to facilitate better understanding of the government’s requirements in these areas, increase awareness in the government of St. Lawrence College’s program which includes mainframe and legacy system courses and to provide students with an insight into government systems programs and opportunities.
