Programming Diploma Students Featured in Metro News (January 2017)
Wanting to further advance his career in the IT industry, Harjeet Mahajan enrolled at InnoTech College in the SharePoint Specialization Programming diploma (October 2016 – July 2017). Mahajan came to Canada to explore the beauty of this country and gain work experience in the energy industry, but his previous training was not getting him to where he wanted to be professionally.
“I had some basic knowledge from DeVry University, but was not able to advance my career, as I was in the hardware side of the IT industry,” says Mahajan.
“There are a lot of jobs in programming when compared to hardware; it is the current trend in the IT market. Programming is also very interesting and challenges me to grow mentally.”
Since starting at InnoTech College, Mahajan has been happy with his decision to pursue his passion of programming. “It has been very interesting since day one, however my favourite topic thus far has been C Sharp (programming language).”
Once Mahajan completes this eight-month program, he hopes to break into the oil and gas industry.

Arriving in Edmonton as an immigrant, Joseph Saad was seeking a better future for himself and his family. With eight years experience in IT before enrolling in the Programming Diploma specializing in SharePoint (September 2016 – June 2017) at InnoTech College, Saad was looking for a way to advance his career here.
“I read about SharePoint and how it is a game changer in the IT industry in terms of productivity and efficiency,” says Saad.
“The next day I saw an advertisement for the SharePoint Diploma with InnoTech College — I realized right away that this is a good opportunity and I contacted InnoTech the same day.” Since starting the eight-month program, Saad has found great satisfaction in the skills he has been learning at InnoTech.
“I’m passionate about software development because I love to create things from scratch and to see tangible results of my work,” he says.
“There are different ways to write the code and reach the same result, which gives you the opportunity to be creative.” For Saad, his favourite part of the program so far has been the web development portion.
“Building websites is a very powerful tool in any kind of business nowadays,” he says. Once he completes this program, Saad says he is excited to use these skills in Share- Point development. “The piece of advice I would give to anyone who is thinking about getting into programming is to believe in yourself, practice, practice and more practice,” says Saad.
