To ensure that you choose the appropriate technology to participate in courses delivered in online and hybrid mode in Fall 2020, please consult the recommended computer specifications for the ICET academic programs.
Software is taking the planet by storm and Centennial College's Software Engineering Technology program will provide you with three years of learning in designing, developing, and maintaining software systems.
During this time, you'll attend advanced diploma courses that will cover modern programming languages, design and algorithm concepts, data management tools, and modern software engineering methodologies. The program will also expose you to a solid knowledge of systems integration, enterprise programming, mobile computing, and software security specialization.
To round out the curriculum's technical focus, the Software Engineering Technology program will include two software development projects. For these real-world business applications, you'll put into action all the technical, systems, and business skills acquired during your courses to build higher-quality software.
The knowledge you'll obtain in Software Engineering Technology will enable you to design and develop various kinds of software applications, human-computer interfaces, and enterprise information systems.
Please note: Qualified college or university graduates with a background in software may gain direct admission into Semester 3 of this three-year program and receive their Software Engineering Technology advanced diploma in four semesters (program #3429 or the co-op optional version, #3439).
Software Engineering Technology courses incorporate the use of leading technology geared to industry standards.
Project-based learning is a key component of the offering.
Knowledgeable and approachable faculty members have diverse business experience and academic credentials.
This program is also delivered in a version that includes a co-op option. Students who choose this version (program #3419) are introduced to some of the biggest names in the industry with whom they are able to network in addition to gaining experience that puts them ahead of the competition — before they even graduate.
Graduates from the program may apply for certified membership to either the Canadian Information Processing Society (CIPS) or their provincial engineering technology association.
