Why study Software Engineering?

Design, code, and test software products – with the big picture in mind. You'll learn a range of skills that will allow you build Apps that capture a new market to large scale system like financial software and information databases. As a software engineer, your expertise in software architectures and refactoring, continuous integration and DevOps, and microprocessors will give you the tools to tackle these challenges everyday.

Concordia was one of the first universities in Canada to introduce an undergraduate program in Software Engineering. Our state-of-the-art labs for software analytics, big data, networks, 3D graphics, high-performance computing and artificial intelligence will give you experience with the tools you’ll use in the field. Through labs, lectures and projects, you’ll also:

  • Study the life cycle of software products from specification through analysis and design, to testing maintenance and evaluation
  • Study the range of paradigms practised by software developers
  • Create professional-quality software systems with professional techniques and tools
  • Learn to balance large-scale product development, with safety, reliability, cost and scheduling

All of our Engineering programs are accredited by the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board and you’ll graduate eligible to become a registered professional engineer.
