Computers drive the 21st-century economy, so a Computer Systems Technician-Software Engineering diploma is exceptionally marketable – especially if you earn it at Sheridan. Graduates of our Computer Systems Technician program possess practical, workplace-ready software engineering skills that translate directly to the workplace. As a program accredited by the Canadian Information Processing Society (CIPS), we concentrate on four core areas of software engineering: Programming and software development in Java, and C; Web technologies and Web application development; Database management and administration; Network administration and security; and Business system development. You will also study computer hardware (including architecture and applied operating systems design), business practice, management and analysis, as well as a three-course math concentration that provides a deeper understanding of software engineering principles. Computer Systems Technician-Software Engineering students graduate with a superior education in software engineering, a competitive edge in the job market, and a set of skills you can adapt for the careers of the future.
