The Computer Engineering curriculum at Algonquin College covers a variety of programming languages (Java, C#, C++, C, and others) and operating systems (Windows, Unix/Linux, and QNX). In addition, students study the development tools and debugging techniques used to design, code, and test integrated and/or embedded applications and software systems.
In their final year, students work in teams on sponsored real-world projects to develop a comprehensive application as part of the software engineering portion of the program. In Level 06, students select an elective course from an approved list in areas which include graphics/multimedia, advanced database programming, android, business programming (Cobol), security and advanced web programming.
Approximately two-thirds of the curriculum consists of courses in systems programming, software development, testing and maintenance. The balance of the curriculum consists of courses in technical communications skills (both oral and written), mathematics and general education electives.
