Overview

This program will prepare you to design, build, implement and maintain complex computer and software solutions that are efficient, reliable and secure. The degree’s emphasis is on artificial intelligence (AI) in solving software engineering problems. Courses focus on software engineering criteria in the areas of mathematics, natural sciences, engineering design and engineering science.

Your studies will include two mandatory, cooperative, four-month work-integrated learning experiences — one between semesters 6 and 7 and another between semesters 7 and 8. In your final year of the program, you will choose from Professional Option courses such as:

  • robotics
  • parallel programming, and
  • computer vision.

You will also undertake a substantial industry-driven group project.

Skills

Throughout this program you will develop the following skills:

  • software engineering techniques
  • artificial intelligence, data mining, machine learning
  • engineering design, natural sciences and mathematics
  • communication, teamwork and leadership skills

Mandatory Degree Co-op

A work experience that includes at least one term in a formal work environment. In most cases, the work term(s) is a paid position that is completed between two academic semesters and requires a minimum of 420 hours of work. Students must be in good standing and meet all identified requirements prior to participating in the work experience. The successful completion of the co-op work term(s) is required for graduation. Eligibility for participation does not guarantee that a work position will be secured. Additional fees are required for those participating in the mandatory co-op stream regardless of success in securing a work position.

Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board (CEAB)

The Bachelor of Engineering – Software Engineering is designed to meet the accreditation requirements of the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board – CEAB. Seneca will be eligible to apply for CEAB accreditation upon the graduation of the first cohort of students.
