Northlands, URegina partner to introduce Computer Science diploma in La Ronge


Northlands College has partnered with the University of Regina to introduce a new diploma in Computer Science. The program is offered entirely in La Ronge, Saskatchewan, and will teach learners essential computing knowledge and skills. Students will be prepared to pursue further education or employment opportunities in areas such as information technology, computer programming, and software development. “This is the type of program we have needed in the north for some time, and it illustrates how great partnerships can overcome obstacles and foster new opportunities for the people of Northern Saskatchewan,” said Northlands Director of University Studies Kory Morvik, who noted that the program will help address industry demand for people trained in the field.
