If it were me choosing I would go with Computer Software Developer. It has many of the same requirements you would typically see in Computer Science curriculum.
This is a suggested plan of study from my own university for students pursuing a computer science degree.
And looking at your AVC Computer Software Developer plan they are very similar in content.
