The Master’s degree consists of two programs: Network Technology (NET) and Digital Media (DM).
Those pursuing the Information Technology (Digital Media, Network Technology) program at Carleton University will cover the design, management and operation of computer networks. They will develop research skills through courses and a project framework. DM students will focus on areas dealing with the development of content and technology for entertainment, education and communication. We also offer a specialization in Data Science to our DM students.
