Computer Engineering - Software

Program Information

School:University of Alberta
Faculty:Faculty of Engineering
Degree:Bachelor; Co-op
Field of Study:Computer Engineering, General
Computer Software Engineering
Description:The Software Option in Computer Engineering offers students a more focused approach to the study of software development. It carefully considers engineering design principles, discrete and continuous mathematics, logic, and the theory of software.

The early years of the program, including a common first year required for all engineering students at the U of A, help students build an understanding and appreciation for the theoretical concepts at the heart of engineering. Like the traditional Computer Engineering program, the Software Option incorporates electrical engineering and computer science courses. Students will focus more on programming in the later years of study, but will also think about user interaction, software testing and maintenance, and security.
