The telecommunications profession in Canada has grown rapidly. With the introduction of competition to the marketplace and the growing need to move voice, image, and data, the demand for qualified professionals in this area is steadily increasing. Graduates of this certificate will have the skills required for positions involving the use, analysis, design, implementation, and management of telecommunications. The certificate will also provide a perspective on the role and function of information systems.

Courses may be credited toward the Ryerson Bachelor of Commerce (Information Technology Management) degree program should candidates wish to continue their education after attaining this certificate. Up to three course credits may be granted on the basis of courses successfully completed at other institutions. All certificate courses are the equivalents of degree credit courses currently offered by the School of Information Technology Management; however, please note that upon successful admission to the program, courses will be assessed for currency and transferability on a course-by-course basis.
