With Training in Software System Designs, You’ll be in Demand!

Software system design is an important part of the computer world. It is also a sector that is highly in demand. In general, software system design or software system development involves problem solving and planning for a software solution. However, there are a few different positions within the field of software systems. Software developers design and carry out a highly technological plan to create the appropriate solution for the software on which they are working. Another job title is that of a systems analyst, which involves researching problems, planning solutions, recommending software and systems and coordinating development. Meanwhile, software analysts are concerned with other facets of the software development process. They can be involved in aspects wider than design and coding, including computer programming. They may also contribute to the overview of the project on the application level rather than component level or individual programming tasks. These highly specialized software professionals are in high demand by a variety of companies in North America.

Centennial College is the only school in Ontario that gives students an opportunity to graduate with a four-year Bachelor’s Degree in Applied Information Sciences through its Software Systems Designs program. Its focus on system design as well as a blend of technology and business subjects proves to be the launching board graduates need to enter the world of technology.

During their training in Software Systems Design, students also use state-of-the-art laboratories that include equipment such as: VoIP, WiFi, Cellular Networks, Advanced Routing and Switching and Network Management and Wireless Broadband (WiMax). The use of laboratories and small classroom sizes ensures hands-on learning and individual attention. The program touches on topics such as: secure systems with encryption, specialization in wireless systems, bioinformatics systems design or service oriented architecture and high reliability systems for mission critical applications. In addition, there is an offering of business subjects to ensure graduates are well rounded.

More hands-on training is offered through a 15-week paid co-op placement. This placement puts students into companies that hire Software Design System professionals, so that they can apply theory and practice to real-life situations. In order to be eligible for co-op, students minimum C grade in ENG-110, minimum 2.0 GPA and minimum 80 per cent of year 1 and 2 courses.

To apply for this program, students must present an Ontario Secondary School Diploma with a minimum of six 12U, 12M, OAC credits or equivalent or be 19 years of age or older. Other requirements include English 12U and one of the following: Math 12U Advanced Functions, Math 12U Calculus and Vectors, Math 12U Mathematics of Data Management or equivalent. Possession of minimum admission requirements does not guarantee admission to program.
