Program Description

Our Software Engineering program is concerned with developing and maintaining software systems that behave reliably and efficiently, are affordable to develop and maintain, and satisfy all the requirements that customers have defined for them. Our faculty consists of world class researchers and practitioners who apply the latest Software Engineering principles at large projects at NASA, DARPA, Raytheon, and Lockheed Martin.

Students earning a Master of Engineering or graduate certificate through our software program will learn to develop and maintain affordable, reliable, and efficient software systems that align with customer needs. Courses focus on three technical areas—cybersecurity, computer engineering, and systems engineering—preparing students to help solve pressing real-world problems.

Requirements specific to the software engineering program include:

  • A bachelor's degree, GPA of 3.0 or better, in computer or electrical engineering, computer science, mathematics, applied mathematics, or a closely related field from an accredited institution
  • Completion of Calculus I and II and at least one college-level computer programming class, covering basic data structures, taught at an accredited institution and equivalent to CMSC 132 or ENEE 150.
