The program suited my lifestyle...
as I could not attend college full-time or in person on a daily basis. Distance learning was my best option. It took discipline and motivation, and with the help of teachers and available technology. This opportunity allowed me to finish the program while acquiring experience; something that I could not have been able to do while attending college onsite. - Ingrid Lahaie

I am glad to be a part of the Northern Community.
The support that I get from my instructors and staff here is excellent. Classes are equipped with the latest technology and the help that students and professors extend from all sides is what keeps me enthusiatic. I also enjoy the events that the college and residence arrange for students. This is my home away from home. - Jay Patil, Electrical Engineering Technology Program
