|Field of Study:
Computer Software Technology/Technician
This option prepares students to design, develop and maintain large scale software systems. Compilers, operating systems, database management systems, communication software and expert systems are examples of large scale software systems. Graduates have experience developing system software and application software. They will have worked individually and as members of teams in moderate to large scale software. |
About the Co-op Option: Since every company has its own distinct software and hardware, our students are given the necessary skills and tools to progress and excel in their field. As students develop, research begins to play a role in their work. They may check code, maintain departmental intranet sites, be involved in gathering requirements for web based projects and providing technical support. Some students are given sections of a project to work on individually, then present collectively with their team. Students are included in website and software quality assurance and they participate in programming, debugging and testing software.
