Trent launches Software Engineering Co-op BSc program

Trent University has launched the Software Engineering Co-op BSc program. The degree—which is offered through Trent’s computer science department—allows students to specialize from the outset of their studies and grow their knowledge base through supplemental courses. Students will complete paid co-op placements after their third year, which will give them opportunities to streamline their pathways into the workforce. “Working in Software Engineering isn’t just programming, it’s also providing expertise, communicating with clients, upholding ethical standards, and being a good team member,” said Trent Associate Professor Dr Omar Alam. “Here, our aim is to equip students with the highest quality technical skills and real-world application experience to ensure they are confident and professional leaders when they leave Trent.”
