Software Engineering, B.S.

Requirements

Software Engineers design and develop large software systems. In addition, they may lead teams of software developers or quality assurance engineers. They also work with users and customers to understand their needs. Software systems we take for granted, such as Microsoft Office, are implemented by software engineers. Software engineers employ innovative software development approaches, such as Agile software development, to effectively manage software development projects.

365体育官方网址Four-year bachelor degrees are offered: Computer Science and Software Engineering. The Computer Science degree (BS-CS) is accredited by the Computing Accreditation Commission of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET) and offers three areas of emphasis: Computer Science, Computer Networking, and Full Stack Web Development. The Computer Science degree conforms to the Association of Computing Machinery (ACM) and Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (IEEE) joint model curriculum, and the Software Engineering degree conforms to the IEEE Computer Society’s Software Engineering Body of Knowledge

Note: Students may earn only one BS Degree in Computer Science or Software Engineering. Additional degrees will not be awarded for completing subsequent BS-CS areas of emphasis.

Requirements for Certificate of Completion (Programmer), Associate in Science in Computer Science (AS-CS) and Associate in Applied Science in Computer Science (AAS-CS) with emphasis in Computing and Networking Sciences degree  is included within the BS degree requirements. Students majoring in Computer Science degrees are encouraged to review these degrees and apply for them when they have met the requirements.

Classroom instruction is supported by well-equipped computer labs.

Career Opportunities365体育官方网址

365体育官方网址Degrees offered by the Computer Science Department prepare students for rewarding career opportunities in many different fields. Occupations available to graduates of our programs are consistently listed as among the highest paid and most in demand, and the long-term employment outlook is currently excellent.
