Software Engineering is the newest branch of Engineering. The Software Engineering curriculum deals with the components of the software process and the technical skills necessary to apply that process in a systematic, disciplined and quantifiable manner. Students also acquire the management skills needed to lead a team that can engineer software and meet appropriate quality standards within specified cost and time schedules. In addition to a number of specialized topics in software engineering, the program also includes courses on fundamental topics in Electrical and Computer Engineering and Computer Science.
Admission Requirements for the Software Engineering Program Students entering the Software Engineering program must have completed the common first year curriculum of Engineering with at least 60% YWA and passing grades in Applied Mathematics 1411A/B, Applied Mathematics 1413, the former Physics 1026 and Engineering Science 1036A/B or Computer Science 1026A/B or the former Computer Science 036a/b.
