Computer Science Training Through Projects

What:

Southeast College’s Computer Science Training through Projects Program uses hands-on projects to teach introductory computer programming and software development.

The course will include:

  • Introductory computer science concepts
  • The Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC)
  • Structure and development of a real-world computer science project
  • Software development collaboration
  • Personalized learning plans

Students will work on real projects resulting in a showcase at a local conference in September 2024.

The program simulates a software company where students take on different roles to complete projects together.

Each student will get a personalized “Continuing Professional Development” learning plan to help them succeed.

Why:

Project-Based Learning works! Students learn real-world skills by completing real projects. They will be mentored by a live instructor at the Estevan campus.  Students will showcase their work on their resume or portfolio. They will build connections with local businesses and others who are passionate about software development and technology.

Southeast College, Estevan Campus. In-person training and mentorship.
