Typically, degree programs are associated with university. However, colleges also offer Bachelor undertakings, which have unique benefits.

  • While university is known for focusing on theory, Bachelor degree offerings at college level balance lectures with hands-on training.
  • Labs, case studies, field trips and role-playing are all teaching tools used at the college level to ensure that students grasp concepts.
  • Practical application is carried out in specialized labs with equipment that is specially geared towards the particular program.
  • All instructors have enjoyed successful careers in the field that allow them to offer a more humanized aspect to their lessons.
  • While university lectures typically have 200 or more people, college bachelor degree classes are still small. This allows for class discussions, collaborative projects, presentations and more.
  • Work terms offer the ultimate practical experience. During work terms, students are placed in the field to apply everything they have learned to a real world environment.

At Centennial College, in particular, there are three Bachelor degree programs.

  • Bachelor of Applied Information Sciences - Bridging to Software Systems Design: Students who previously graduated from a computer analyst or software engineering program at Centennial or from a similar program from another college may be eligible to obtain this four-year Bachelor of Applied Information Sciences in Software System Design in two years. The program sees them enter Software Systems Designs in semester five and aside from regular courses, complete three bridging courses: two in mathematics and one in computer architecture during regular semesters.
  • Bachelor of Applied Information Sciences - Software Systems Design: Centennial College was selected by the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities to deliver this program to address the current demand in North America for highly specialized software designers. Placing an emphasis on advanced software standards and management, the offering provides specialization in mobile application development or service-oriented architecture and cloud computing.
  • Bachelor of Applied Information Sciences - Computer and Communication Networks: Centennial College is the only post-secondary institution in the province to offer a bachelor's degree offering in Computer and Communication Networks. By blending technology and business subjects, grads are prepared to take on roles such as IT project managers, technical account managers, business account managers, network administrators, network analysts, network support, security analysts and project management analysts.
