A Concentration is a structured plan of study within a program (6 to 12 core or professional electives) that provides an opportunity for advanced or in-depth study in a particular area of interest. Students must declare their concentration prior to applying to graduate. Courses used to fulfil the requirements of a concentration cannot also be used to fulfil the requirements of a minor.

You may focus your Table I (Computer Science Group) electives on software engineering by including this specific set of courses into your degree.  

Choose six (6) courses from the following:

CPS 610 Database Systems II
CPS 613 Human-Computer Interaction
CPS 707 Software Verification and Validation
CPS 714 Software Project Management
CPS 731 Software Engineering I
CPS 831 Software Engineering II
CPS 845 Extreme Programming and Agile Processes
CPS 847 Software Tools for Startups
CPS 853 Creating Big Data Systems


Successful completion will mean that 'Concentration in Software Engineering' will appear on your transcript. This Concentration is not a CEAB accredited engineering degree program leading to the designation Professional Engineer (P.Eng.).

Students will have to declare their intention to pursue the Concentration at the end of winter semester in Year 2. The program, at its discretion, may limit access to the Concentration based on space availability in the Concentration courses.
