Brosseau represented Ontario at the national competition, having earlier secured a first-place finish at the 28th annual Skills Ontario Competition held from May 1 to 3, 2017 in Toronto.
The BIT program, jointly offered by Carleton’s School of Information Technology and Algonquin College, provides four programs of study: Information Resource Management; Interactive Multimedia and Design; Network Technology; and Photonics and Laser Technology to students at both institutions. The BIT degree provides students with the theoretical knowledge and practical skills required to meet the technology needs of today and tomorrow.
