“This is a world-class program that equips Manitoba students with skills that are highly valued by the IT industry,” said Premier Selinger. “We are investing in making it available to even more students so they can get the jobs of tomorrow right here at home.”

Information technology, networking and cyber security jobs are in high demand, and the school is working closely with employers and leading companies to link students to paid internships, work experience and jobs after graduation, the premier said. These companies include Complex Games, MTS, EPIC, Seccuris and Octipi Managed Services.

Students will also have access to dual credits through partnerships with Red River College and the University of Winnipeg for advanced placement and post-secondary credits, to put them on a fast track toward furthering their education, the premier added.
