Program Information

School:McGill University
Faculty:Faculty of Engineering
Field of Study:Computer Software Engineering
Description:Software engineers design, develop and test complex software that applies computer technology to specific practical ends such as booking an airline ticket on-line, downloading e-mail or scanning items through a check-out line at the grocery store. They perform many of the same functions as general computer programmers, but software engineers apply the principles and techniques of computer science, engineering, and mathematical analysis to the design, development, testing, and evaluation of the software that enables computers to perform their many applications. This program offers students the opportunity to focus their studies on the skills needed to design and develop complex software systems.

In addition to technical complementary courses, students take general complementary courses in social sciences, management studies, and humanities. These courses allow students to develop specific interests in areas such as psychology, economics, management, or political science.
