The MSEE program is based on the new,
nationally recognized Graduate Software Engineering Reference
Curriculum (faculty members Drs. Stephen Chenoweth and Shawn Bohner
were reviewers). The MSSE degree provides a sound educational basis
for software professionals seeking to become software architects or
project managers. The program is designed to meet the demands and
constraints of both the working professional looking for part-time
study and those who can devote one year for full-time study. The
program offers a classroom-based approach that encourages
networking with other technical professionals pursuing the
Master of Science in
Software Engineering degree requirements:
