Why study Software Applications & Systems Development?

Maybe you want to enhance an app on your phone to make it more cutting-edge. Or you might have an interest in discovering defects in code or the reason something just isn’t right. Or perhaps you want to start clean and develop something no one has seen before. As a Software Applications & Systems Development major, you’ll have the opportunity to do all of these things and more, allowing you to pursue a career path that blends many of your interests.

The SASD major combines software programming and design from our computer science program with business analysis and project planning from the information systems program, making your degree truly interdisciplinary and well-rounded. And though you’ll work with various software engineering tools and methodologies, including some that are cutting edge, you'll also develop skills that will help you wherever your career takes you, including the ability to communicate effectively, critically evaluate and solve problems, and recognize the diverse roles needed to make an effective, complex system.
