Toronto Catholic District School Board

Specialist High Skills Major (SHSM)

Women in Technology (ICT)

Notre Dame is pleased to offer a Specialist High Skills Major (SHSM) in Women In Technology (ICT – Information and Communications Technology). This program allows students to focus on a career path that matches their technological skills and interests. Women are currently under-represented in the ICT sector, making up less than 25% of ICT professionals and the need for ICT professionals in the next decade will be growing faster than new ICT professionals entering the field. Women in technology will be in high-demand in the workforce.


SHSM students receive specialized hands-on training, participate in workshops, attend College and University activities and gain real-world experience through Co-op placements.


SHSM graduates receive a red seal designation on their diploma, as well as an impressive resume filled with relevant, sector-related experience and training.​
