Northern College is teaming up with Algoma University and Durham College to create a new online bridging program.

This program will help students achieve a Bachelor of Computer Science.

Northern College Vice President of Academic and Student Success Audrey Penner says this program has been created to help students achieve their education goals without having to leave their home towns. Penner says if students want to stay in their community, they can move seamlessly through the entire program.

The program is open to graduates of Computer Engineering Technician diploma programs. The first intake of students will be in the fall of 2018.
