About this course
The MSSE degree requires a minimum of 45 quarter units of work. All applicants for the Master of Science in Software Engineering program must have a bachelor’s degree in Computer Science or Computer Engineering from an accredited four-year program.
The program consists of a software engineering core, a set of software engineering electives, and a capstone project. The electives expose each student to multiple areas of study within technology, thus providing breadth to their technical proficiency. Students must work with their advisor to select 15 units of appropriate software engineering electives. The capstone project comprises three consecutive terms of effort and provides an opportunity for students to apply their technical breadth and the core engineering principles toward the development of a complex, team-oriented software project.
