Software Engineering Curriculum

All students are required to complete an introductory pre-work one week before the start of class. During pre-work, students will get accustomed to our online learning management system (Canvas), set up their computing environment, and familiarise themselves with the basics of the programming languages that will prepare them for day 1 of the program.

Our Full Stack Software Engineering Curriculum covers both Back-End and Front-End programming technologies so you can become a full-stack developer. It’s a more extensive course of study than the average school offers but our goal is to teach you more than simply knowing how to code

To grow as a software engineer, you must be agile and able to learn and adapt, no matter the challenge that you’re given. In our program, you’ll hone communication and collaboration skills, and you’ll become part of the technical community as you build and share a Github portfolio.

Course Modules

All students are required to complete an introductory pre-work one week before the start of class.

During pre-work, students will get accustomed to our online learning management system (Canvas), set up their computing environment, and familiarise themselves with the basics of the programming languages that will prepare them for day 1 of the program.

HTML

Students master the basic building blocks of how the web is rendered and become fluent in the language that makes the web beautiful. They additionally learn how to conceive of and build UIs for web apps by writing well-structured HTML and CSS.

Git

Students explore version control using git commands including cloning, branching, merging, rolling back commits, forking, and submitting pull requests.

JavaScript powers the user experience of the web. Students learn the basics of JavaScript syntax, its functional architecture, and different approaches to the object model. Students then learn the Document Object Model (DOM) Javascript API provided by the browser to dynamically interact with HTML. Students use native “vanilla” JavaScript (versus a library). Students then explore the popular Javascript framework React.

You’ll learn two key Ruby frameworks, first mastering the fundamentals of web programming with Sinatra before learning how to build incredible apps with Rails.

  • Leading Self
  • Communicating for Impact
  • Working with Others
  • Entrepreneurial Thinking
  • Project Management
  • Career Readiness

You’ll gain a thorough understanding of Ruby basics before getting comfortable with object-oriented programming and storing information in databases using SQL and Object Relational Mappers.

First, you’ll learn Rails – an object-oriented, Ruby framework – before applying it to JSON API along with productive, scalable front-ends with ReactJS and Redux, creating slick, functional, reactive code.

The program completes with a large-scale group project that will be guided by your technical instructor. You’ll receive plenty of instructor feedback along the way while diving deep into various advanced technologies needed to bring your concepts to life.

To grow as a software engineer, you must be agile and able to learn and adapt, no matter the challenge you are given. Communication and collaboration skills, building a project portfolio on Github, and being part of the tech community are some additional aspects of becoming a successful software engineer.
