The software engineering and app development minor at CBU (18 units) is designed to prepare students to add software engineering skills to their existing major so that they can build functional and modern computing solutions and applications to solve problems in their field of expertise. While not a “boot camp,” the software engineering and app development minor is designed to help engineering and non-engineering majors learn the essential skills to build mobile, web and cloud apps as quickly as possible.
