Program Overview

Full-time Program - Attestation d’Études Collégiales (AEC) LEA.BN

The Full Stack Developer program was previously known as Internet Programming and Development (IPD) A.E.C.

The Full Stack Developer program is a full-time credit program that leads to an Attestation of College Studies (A.E.C.). The objective of the Full-Stack Developer (FSD) program is to provide hands-on, up-to-date training using current industry-standard methodologies and technologies.

A Full Stack Developer is a web developer who works with both the front and back ends of a website or application. They can work on projects that involve databases, building user-facing websites, or even work with clients during the planning phase of projects.

This program is 1,305 hours in length, delivered over the course of five semesters. It includes 16 courses, and an internship. By the end of the program, students will have attained 16 competencies, and be prepared to enter the labour market with a well-rounded set of skills.

New segmented version of the program:

A student who completes the full 1 305-hour program, including an internship in the workplace, will obtain an AFT in Front-end web development, followed by a second AFT in Software development.  The student will also receive the Full-Stack Developer Attestation of collegial studies (AEC) upon completion of the program.  This initiative is designed to increase graduation rates and ease the labour market shortage in sectors experiencing a lack of skilled workers.

Job Outlook

The Full-Stack Developer program falls under National Occupation Code (NOC) 2174 – Computer programmers and interactive media developers. According to provincial level labour market information, the 2019-2023 job outlook in Montreal is excellent.
