Software Applications and Systems Development, B.Sc.

  • Application Deadline
  • 48 months
    Duration
Syracuse, UT, United States
The software applications and systems development (SASD) program combines software programming and software design from the computer science (CS) program with business analysis and project planning from the information systems (IS) program. 

Overview

Ask a software engineer about their job and they'll likely mention the cool stuff - developing new apps, discovering defects in code, or designing a new feature into an existing app. What is often not talked about are the activities that lead to the cool stuff - presenting a prototype of a new app, documenting test results, discussing a new feature with a domain expert, or writing a software specification. The SASD program will help you develop the skills necessary to effectively communicate your ideas to others, to appreciate the diversity of roles needed when developing complex software systems, and to perform the technical work that is more directly associated with applications and systems development.

Programme Structure

SASD program’s strength is in the liberal arts tradition – students receive broad exposure to other disciplines while obtaining a solid foundation in developing software applications and systems. Our program adheres to the latest curriculum guidelines for software engineering. A distinctive feature is a requirement for students to minor in another academic discipline.

A significant difference between the SASD and CS programs is in the mathematics requirement. The SASD program requires a student to take either Mathematics for Business Majors (MTH 120) or Brief Calculus (MTH 122) while the CS program requires a student to take Calculus I (MTH 145). A significant difference between the SASD and IS programs is that the SASD program requires a student to earn a minor in any academic discipline, while the IS program requires a student to take the Business core courses (which is similar to earning a minor in business administration).
