The Master of Science in Software Engineering (MSSE) program is designed for working professionals in the software field. Students are required to have a B.S. degree and at least one year of work experience. The program will broaden your perspective of the software engineering field by offering a diverse curriculum. Courses are offered one day per week on alternating Fridays and Saturdays, enabling students to graduate in two years with the summer off, and thereby shortening the learning curve. The program also gives students the opportunity to get to know other professionals in the field and learn from each other as well as the professors.
