American University of Central Asia - AUCA - MINOR REQUIREMENTS




The Software Engineering Minor is designed for non-computer majors who wish to gain a practical grounding in Software Engineering without pursuing a detailed theoretical background.  It comprises a selection of courses that are more practical in nature than theoretical.  As such, the Software Engineering minor serves as a good base for non-computer specialists in post-AUCA life.


The Software Engineering Minor requires 42 credit hours: five compulsory courses, plus two other computer courses, to be chosen from a recommended list.
