About

History

Since 1966, Centennial College has been setting students up for success. It's been over 50 years, and in that time, a share of students become proud Centennial alumni. The meaning of success is different for every person, but all of them share the common theme of working to towards a goal, with the college supporting them every step of the way.

Education

Our mission is to educate students for career success. We make every decision to support the career and personal development of our learners. Our curriculum, teaching and services also demonstrate that we value the diverse profiles of our learners.

Research

The future growth and welfare of our society and economy will depend largely on our ability to be innovative. Centennial students need the knowledge and skills to think critically and creatively about complex problems. They also require a platform to gain experience and apply their ingenuity. Our industry partners, meanwhile, consistently need to improve their processes, services and products. The Applied Research and Innovation Centre (ARIC) meets all of these needs and then some.

Career

The Career Services and Co-operative Education team gives students and graduates the confidence and tools for career success from the first semester to two years after graduation.
