The Master of Software Engineering degree program is intended to provide the following skills to those who successfully complete it:
  • Software system design and development
  • Software development lifecycles
  • Web and mobile application development
  • System testing and quality assurance
  • Waterfall and agile software development
  • Programming languages such as C/C++/C#; Java, Android and iOS
  • Design patterns
  • Cloud computing
  • Software success metrics and incident tracking
  • Software system and project management
  • Software development cost estimation
The CSE Department has three master’s degree plan types. The 36 hour non-thesis degree plan is what most students follow and is the default degree plan at admission. There is a 30 hour non-thesis degree plan for students who qualify. Finally, there is also a 30 hour thesis degree plan for students interested in a more research oriented degree. All three plans are described in the Master’s Program Guide. 
Candidate selection for the Master of Software Engineering degree program is a very a competitive process, considering GPA, performance in computer-related classes, TOEFL or IELTS (for non-English speaking candidates), GRE and reputation of the university where you did your undergraduate studies. Relevant recent work experience is considered in cases where educational credentials are dated or not in the computer science field.
