Information on Bridging Course in Software Systems Design

The Bachelor of Applied Information Sciences – bridging to software systems design is a bridging course for computer program/analyst graduates or software engineering graduates or graduates from any similar program who want to obtain four-year Bachelor of Applied information Sciences in Software Systems Design (SSD) in just two years. Interested candidates can join this program from the fifth semester and upgrade their knowledge and skills for more advanced career opportunities in systems design and software development.

The bridging software design course is also a right choice for those who are looking to upgrade their knowledge and technical skills in computer programming or software engineering or want to obtain eligibility to apply for certified membership of Canadian Information Processing Society (CIPS).

Bridging Software Design Program Details

The bridging software design program is a bachelor level course that runs for two years through four semesters. While covering database programming, computer and human interaction, programming for networking systems, software testing and maintenance and service oriented architecture, the program also includes basic subjects such as, discreet mathematics, calculus, software standards, emerging technologies, technical writing and documentation and business consulting.

The two-year program also covers cryptography and information security as well as entrepreneurship in the new economy. Not only this, students also study liberal subjects and can choose from psychology: ethical reasoning for today’s world, social psychology, principles of human behaviour, popular culture and human geography: migration and globalization.

The program combines classroom learning, three individual and team software development projects and a field placement to help students gain hands-on experience.

Career Options

Employment prospects in the field of software development are bright in the current times. They are expected to grow at a fast rate in the coming years due to a dramatic increase in the demand for computers, laptops, smart phones, tablets and other technology devices.

The professionals can seek employment as software developers, software testers, game programmers, computer programmers, system analysts, business analysts, web application developers, database administrators or applications or software support.

Despite increased career prospects, the job market has become more competitive than ever. Professionals with excellent educational background, thorough understanding of computer systems and architecture and other related technologies and hands-on experience have better chances of finding high paying jobs. A bachelor degree program can help interested individuals in obtaining the knowledge, skills and competencies required to build rewarding careers in this field.

Admission Requirements

In order to apply for this program, students will need to submit a three-year computer programmer/ analyst diploma or a computer science/information technology/software engineering degree with a GPA of 208 or higher from a recognized institution, a proof of English proficiency and a review of transcript by an independent body.

Choosing the Right College

Although a number of colleges in Canada offer bridging programs in software system design but not all are accredited. Centennial College’s software systems design (SSD) program is a fully Canadian Information Processing Society (CIPS) ISTAC accredited program. Moreover, graduates of this program are also eligible to apply for certified members hip of CIPS.
