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.

- 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.
