What our students and graduates are saying

Jennifer HannahArchitectural Design Technology

It really was the flexibility of the program that sold me on it. Because it’s online, I am able to pursue the career that I want without having to pack up and move my family and if one of my kids is home sick from school, I don’t need to forgo my studies for that day. I definitely recommend the Architectural Design Technology program at Digital School because of the quality of education. So many programs and schools have gone online this past year… and Digital School has been offering online programming for years, so they’ve got it figured out.

Emilio A. JovellanosEngineering Design Technology

We live in the information age, which allows us to harness information like never before, and that is why I chose Digital School for my education. Digital School provided everything I needed to satisfy my love of creativity and design and harness that into a professional career in both Architectural and Engineering. The staff in Digital School are so very professional, caring, and fun people to learn from, they literally put students in the right path to success with real world information.

Rylie MalashewskiArchitectural Design Technology

I enrolled in the Architectural Design program in order to switch careers. I gained 2D & 3D Computer-Aided Design skills, became familiar with building plans and touched on the Alberta Building Code. With these skills and knowledge I was able to obtain my current position as an Architectural Technologist. Digital School has helped me find a career that I enjoy, today.

Jon MaliwatBIM Technician

The teaching methods and the curriculum was a good fit for me and was able to finish a BIM Technician program in one year. I excelled in my studies and finished as an Honours Graduate. After graduation, I immediately got job offers from three different companies. It is truly one of the best decisions I have ever made and I would highly recommend Digital School to my friends.
