Application Domain Declaration Form
Our curriculum gives you the opportunity to explore an application domain (focus area) that fits your professional and academic outlook. An application domain consists of three courses that relate to a specific area of interest. Your application domain gives you broad exposure to topics and issues that may arise in the working world. It also helps prepare you to interact with team members from non-computing disciplines, an essential skill for every industry.
Selecting an Application Domain
Choose an Application Domain from this list, or submit a student-proposed domain (see below)
Declaring an Application Domain

- The Domain must be relevant to Software Engineering. You will need to defend the relevance on the declaration form
- It is your responsibility to ensure that prerequisites are met, and that you are eligible to register for the courses.
- You may choose to contact the department(s) offering the proposed courses, in order to get feedback and additional information on course content
- You must review your proposed domain with a faculty member before submitting the form for approval
- Deadline: Submit your form at least one term before you plan to start your domain coursework, no later than Week 3
