Scientific, technical and sophisticated commercial systems developers require education in what has come to be called "software engineering," which encompasses the utilization of sophisticated development tools. This domain focuses on technique-oriented computer science, computational systems software development, and applied research. It emphasizes the quantitative and scientific characteristics in software development. Hardware/software issues, embedded control in hardware, and large software/hardware systems development are all part of this emphasis.
This program would be of interest to persons in computer science, computational science, systems software development, knowledge-based systems, database development, distributed database development, telecommunications, networking, multimedia software development, and neural networks. Students completing this degree almost always will be working in organizations where the MS is the recognized degree, and where most of their colleagues will also hold an MS degree in engineering or a scientific discipline.
To complete the requirements for the Master of Science in software engineering (MS) students must successfully complete 14 courses (42 graduate semester credits) and maintain a GPA of 2.7.
Current and inactive students who are enrolled in this program prior to fall 2015 may opt to remain with the graduate program requirements from their current catalog, or move forward to the newest graduate program requirements for the M.S. degree in Software Engineering.
