Program Description Centennial College's Software Engineering Technician (Fast-Track) program allows you to gain direct admission into year two (semester three) of the two-year college technology program and receive your diploma in one year (two semesters), if you are a qualified college or university graduate with a background in software. This fast-track version of the Software Engineering Technician program is ideal for those seeking a shorter-term program for timely reentry into the workplace. While most people just use software, in this college engineering program, you learn to design, develop and maintain various software applications, human computer interfaces and enterprise information systems. Through a combination of theory and hands-on learning, you acquire solid knowledge of software engineering methodologies, programming languages, design and algorithm concepts, data management tools and networking fundamentals. The coursework emphasizes object-oriented software design methodologies, user-oriented interface design, C#, Java, Oracle, MS-SQL Server, Microsoft's ASP.NET Core and software testing and QA. To underscore the applied focus of the Software Engineering Technician (Fast-Track) curriculum, this School of Engineering Technology and Applied Science program includes a software development project. The real-world business application gives you the opportunity to utilize all the technical and business skills acquired during your time in the program to build high quality software.
