Software Engineering (Faculty of Science)


Software engineers design, develop and test the software programs that apply computer technology to everyday processes. Things as fundamental to our daily lives as downloading e-mails or scanning barcodes at the grocery store would not be possible without software engineers. The needs and opportunities are endless.

This program offers foundational knowledge in computer and electrical engineering. You will develop the skills needed to design, create and troubleshoot complex software systems.

The Bachelor of Software Engineering is offered through the Faculty of Engineering and the School of Computer Science. You can also pursue this program in the Faculty of Science if you want to learn the principles, techniques and methodology of software engineering while exploring a range of other subjects. Please note, however, that this program does not lead to certification as a professional engineer.


Though the BA in Software Engineering does not lead to certification as a professional engineer, you will graduate with many marketable skills for careers in areas like programming, web and game development, and technology administration. You may also wish to pursue graduate studies.

You could become a professional:

  • Database administrator
  • Software tester
  • Web developer
  • Game developer
  • Multimedia programmer
