|Field of Study:||Computer Software Engineering
|Description:||The demand for software engineers has increased dramatically as computer systems have become so common in our everyday lives. Software engineering is a systematic and disciplined approach to developing software. Your courses will not only include a solid foundation in math, engineering, and computer science, but will also cover the software development process, project management, and technical documentation.
Waterloo's co-op program gives you an edge in the software industry after graduation. You'll graduate with 2 years of paid co-op work experience and earn money to finance your education. Most Software Engineering students work at leading software design firms even before they graduate. The program, which combines Waterloo's internationally-recognized strengths in Computer Science and Computer Engineering, is accredited by the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board and the Computer Science Accreditation Council, giving you access to careers in both areas.
