Designed to meet the urgent needs of unique sectors
Our postgraduate programs are designed to put students to work. This is accomplished by liaising closely with our many industry partners who define their needs for technology specialists in high-demand sectors such as finance, health care, consulting, telecommunication, and mining. Some postgraduate programs even offer students with the opportunity to earn credits toward valuable industry designations!
A flexible, responsive learning environment

Some programs are offered following an alternative delivery format which combines face-to-face learning along with blended and online learning formats. For some programs, this means that students can continue to work while they learn -- just one more way that we maximize students’ time and are responsive to their needs.

Many postgraduate programs allow students to gain experience in facilities and labs modelled after real workplaces with state-of-the-art technology.

“I have been working in the IT security field for a few years now, and recognize the shortage of trained and skilled IT security professionals. In my work, I regularly come across network configurations done by non-security technicians, which can result in gaping holes in their company’s security capabilities. We see cyber-crime on the rise everywhere – especially as more operations become based on cloud and mobile solutions. As malware and the individuals who implement these threats become more sophisticated, we need programs such as the Network and System Security Analysis program where IT professionals can become future security specialists”.

“I can't fully emphasis how great, valuable, awesome, and beneficial the T405 program was! I still find myself falling back on skills I acquired, be it tools, soft skills, documentation or just an overall mental approach to problem solving. I can definitively say that the program was hands down the best investment I ever made. It continues to pay off on a personal and professional level, and for that, I'll always be grateful.

The IT Security stream provided a lot of relevant and in-depth knowledge in security techniques and encryption methods. The program enabled the student to gain a deeper understanding of why IT Security is so important in the world today. I found the content to be interesting and I was encouraged to learn as much as possible in IT Security.
IT Security encompasses all industries and it is vital to fully understand the details to protect valuable information. GBC provided me a strong basis to excel in the IT Security field with challenging yet interesting lab work with a ton of hands-on experience and thought provoking lectures taught by an IT Security expert.
