Description: Some of the most recent and most powerful technologies transforming our lives stem from the development of reliable, economical computer software. Exciting new technologies are transforming the way we live and work – technologies such as distributed computer and the Internet, multimedia applications, and innovative telecommunications systems.

At Carleton University, the Bachelor of Engineering (B.Eng.) degree program in Software Engineering is much more than computer programming. It offers education in important areas such as software security, reliability, timeliness of responses, and the ability to meet the requirements of the end-users. Carleton teaches programming paradigms and design notations, which are essential parts of the discipline. Additional concerns that we address are rapid design with sufficient flexibility for future changes and due regard for safety, economy, efficiency, and speed of execution.
