Our graduate programs include a Master of Science degree in Software Engineering and Graduate Certificates in Software Engineering Foundations and Software Engineering. In addition to welcoming full-time students with undergraduate degrees in computing fields, we also cater to two major non-traditional groups of students: those with baccalaureate degrees in other majors and those whose schedules allow for only part-time studies. We have a substantial array of evening course offerings. Moreover, we offer an increasing number of our courses fully online.

In addition to a wide selection of courses, the programs allow students to take advantage of the many opportunities. Many graduate and research assistantships are available, as are several student assistant positions, some through sponsored research. The colloquium series features talks by invited speakers on current topics in the discipline. We support student organizations and offer Game Jams throughout the year to encourage development of student knowledge and skills outside the classroom.
