Bachelor of Science in Software Engineering

The BS in software engineering is based on a mathematical foundation that includes calculus, linear algebra and discrete mathematics. The two programs also have the same computer science core, including modern programming methodologies, the analysis of algorithms and data structures, and the study of operating systems. While the computer science program continues with courses in advanced data structures, programming languages and automata theory, the software engineering program includes courses in engineering, software validation and testing, and software architecture. There is also a rich choice of application areas, including digital systems design, computer networks, embedded systems, computer imaging, artificial intelligence, machine learning and human-computer interaction.

Careers in Software Engineering
Virtually all major companies and corporations need software-related core competencies. Software engineers are central in developing and making use of these competencies. They work in teams that interface extensively with clients, company executives, IT managers, data scientists, and security and domain experts. Software engineering professionals are creative, highly collaborative, well paid and in very high demand with employers. Software engineering graduates embark on career paths that may lead to positions as chief strategy officer, project manager, chief technology officer, software architect, senior manager of software development, risk management officer and security analyst.
