There is more to student success than the number of students who graduate and find careers in the Architecture and Engineering industry. That’s important, and we’ve designed our programs to give our students the tools and support required to learn the skills they need to find a rewarding career upon graduation.

But student success is much deeper. What matters most is impact. When we look at student success, we look at the ways that our students and graduates are impacted through their experience at Digital School.

We strive to provide an educational environment unlike any other; an environment that is flexible, supported by caring instructors, effective in teaching building information modelling and impactful beyond the classroom.

Digital School Student Success is about watching students pursuing their passion and transforming their careers.

And how do we measure this? By listening to the stories our students and alumni share with us…

At Digital School, I have become exactly the person I want to be.

I choose to learn from the best. The instructors are very qualified, and I know they want us to succeed. They are skillful, humble, passionate, teaching from personal experience, and excited to show you the way. What they will help you improve your knowledge, not just during the course, but beyond.

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.

I would recommend Digital School for many reasons, 1) very knowledgeable and helpful instructors, 2) the fast-paced education (gets you back to work sooner), 3) hands on learning, and 4) they still are here for me now – years later when I have a question or need something!

Kelly Marshall

Since Digital School offers asynchronous for the first semester, it is very convenient for me not having to meet on a regular basis. The use of online courses allows you to cover the material needed in school while maintaining your workload. Since I won’t be physically going to class each week, I can take part in class from the comfort of my own home. Also, one of the main objectives of Digital School is to become a well-rounded individual with the skills needed to successfully manage a busy agenda. Even if it’s online learning, being able to communicate with Digital School instructors has made me be a more active student. If I have questions, they reply to my messages right away and provide clearer instructions - also, there is a time where we have a video meeting for further assistance.

Andrea Galicia

I would recommend Digital School for anyone wanting to transition to a new career fast. The instructors, help desk, and admin staff are readily available to help when needed. Very pleasant to deal with and [they] respond quickly to inquiries and requested help.

Damia Henry

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.

Rylie Malashewski

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.

Emilio A. Jovellanos

Digital School expects nothing less than the best from each and every student. Teachers are here to teach but at this school they inspire the students.

Jose Biscocho

The Engineering CAD Technician Program at Digital School allows students to quickly enter the labour force, while also equipping them with the skills necessary to be successful.

Jia (Jenny) Mu

Digital School not only taught me the necessary technical skills necessary to start my career as an Engineering CAD Draftsperson/Designer but also I learned the attributes needed on being a good employee-such as working collaboratively, effective communication, being comfortable with computers, not only CAD but MS Office Software as well. Furthermore, the instructors present the topic in an organised and easy to understand method, regardless whether the student has previous engineering background or not.

Arvin Odono

Their teaching methods and the curriculum was a good fit because I was able to finish a Technician course 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.

Jon Maliwat

I would certainly recommend Digital School… they can educate you in the most efficient way possible. I saved a year of studying because I went to Digital School instead of going to other technical schools, which by the way teaches almost the same subjects but only using half the time.

Mark Daniel Haban

I choose Digital School firstly to improve my knowledge of computer [programs] (AutoCAD, Revit, etc.) and secondly to know more about Architecture in Canada. I improved my knowledge, which helped me to understand what I should do in my career.

Shiva Asadollahi

Coming from a third world country (I was barely seven months in Canada), I had that feeling of hesitation and anticipation when I enrolled in 2012. It turned out for the best of my chosen field and more. While I was aiming for that academic maturity I also felt growing up as a person, of becoming who I wish to be in my adopted country. My experience of having personal connection with the school community made it unique and all the more worthwhile.

Eugene Sevilla

As I went through the whole year of the academics, from the very first hour of my first day and up to my last day, the school's administration and its faculty and staff were always ready to help me with my needs. You can never go wrong with having Professional Instructors around to make your learning fun, exciting and very challenging.

Bembe dela Fuente

Digital School offered the fastest and most comprehensive program to get me back into the workplace. My diploma was achieved in one year, with hands on experience and real-world knowledge. The instructors cared about my progress and were there every step of the way. I would most definitely repeat the experience!

Kelly Landry

I would like to thank Digital School for providing the one year Architectural Cad Technician diploma. This program had really equipped me -in a very short time - with the right tools I need to compete in the job market. And I can proudly say that I had invested my time at Digital School. I updated my skills, gained more knowledge and became more confident and as a result I have more open doors in front of me.
