Bachelor in Software Systems Engineering

General

Program Description

Learn to apply your computing knowledge to solve real-life problems. The software systems engineering (SSE) program is designed to give you the knowledge needed to analyze, design and develop software operations on many types of computers and microprocessors.

Software systems engineering students apply computational theories to real-life programming techniques, analyze software requirements, design, implement, and test software systems, plan and manage software projects, solve technical problems and practice co-design and embedded systems construction.

Sample Courses

Digital Networks, Operating Systems for Industrial Applications, Software Process Management, Knowledge Base and Information Systems.

What is Software Systems Engineering?

Software Systems Engineers apply computing knowledge to solve real-life problems. They become engineering professionals and leaders in a broad scope of projects. Software Systems Engineers work as software architects, analysts, designers, consultants, and project managers.

Our Program

The Software Systems Engineering (SSE) program is designed to give students the knowledge to analyze, design, and develop software operating on many types of computers and microprocessors.

Graduate with:

  • Bachelor of Applied Science (B.A.Sc.) in Software Systems Engineering.
  • Students in Co-operative Education graduate with a B.A.Sc. (Co-op) in Software Systems Engineering.
  • Students in the Internship Program graduate with a B.A.Sc. (Internship) in Software Systems Engineering.

The SSE program is fully accredited by the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board.

What SSE Students Do

All engineering students take a common initial core program consisting of the basic maths and sciences needed by all engineers, plus introductory design courses.

Our SSE students apply computational theories to real-life programming techniques; analyze software requirements; design, implement, and test software systems; plan and manage software projects; solve technical problems; and practice co-design and embedded systems construction.

What sort of career could you have?

Software Systems Engineers typically work in the following areas or hold the following job titles:

  • Design Engineer
  • Embedded Systems Engineer
  • Integration Engineer
