    Career and Placement after Course

    Software Engineer


    10.0 /10

    I was interested in software and wanted to pursue a career in that field. I also wanted to know more about that field and I was genuinely interested in it and that was the main reason I picked it as a career.

    Course Curriculum :

    The courses take hard work and dedication to do well in them but generally, it's just a matter of how much time you invest in it, if you spend enough time then you'll be pleased with the outcome. If you don't, then you won't be so pleased with it.

    They had a co-op program that gives valuable internship experience. Adding three internships to your resume will come in very handy once graduated and when competing with the numerous other students applying for junior positions.

    Course Curriculum :

    The course curriculum is modern enough, with a heavy emphasis on practical experience over theory. There are a lot of labs and great projects that are a part of the course curriculum. There is also a capstone project in the final year, where you work with sponsors to bring an idea to life.
