We have been running the CCIT, DEM and Professional Writing programs in their current form for more than a decade. When we started out we were excited by the opportunities our students would have to explore innovative ideas at the intersection of digital technologies, organizations, society and culture. Over ten years later, if anything, we are even more excited. We have seen our CCIT programs transform and mature, becoming some of the most innovative programs in their respective areas globally. We have added the Interactive Digital Media (IDM) program, which will give students exposure to state-of-the art interactive and immersive digital media, to our family of undergraduate programs. The IDM also represents a new departure for us since it will be offered jointly with the Faculty of Information at the University of Toronto.
Another recent, key development is the new Institute of Communication, Culture, Information and Technology (ICCIT), created by the University of Toronto Mississauga not only to oversee all our existing programs, but to develop an exciting range of research themes that will bring together faculty, students, and a variety of outside partners to explore the opportunities for innovation in our undergraduate programs and to develop collaborative graduate programs.
Over the last decade, we have amassed an incredible roster of alumni who have established themselves in careers in a variety of fields both in Canada and throughout the world.
If are you excited about the possible futures that digital technologies offer -- whether your interest lies in the technologies themselves or their application to such areas as traditional and emerging media, traditional or online business, healthcare, or education and development – I invite you to join us in the ICCIT. You will find a stimulating learning environment, committed and engaged students, faculty members at the forefront of technological innovation, and a Director and staff who are dedicated to you, your studies, and your future career.
