Master of Science in Software Engineering

Brandeis University



Brandeis University's online Master of Science in Software Engineering degree offers a flexible online program for developing a well-rounded understanding the various principles of computer science and mathematics in order to create and maintain cost effective solutions to software problems.

Throughout the course of this online degree program for software engineering, students will focus their studies on the systematic production and maintenance of software products, and involves not only the technical aspects of building software systems, but a wide realm of additional considerations as well, such as the collaboration required of programming teams and the alignment of software solutions with organizational strategies.

As a student in this online software engineering degree program, individuals will take a number of courses that will prepare them to:

  • Apply a systematic, disciplined, quantifiable approach to the cost-effective development, operation and maintenance of software systems to the satisfaction of their beneficiaries.
  • Build solutions using different technologies, architectures and life-cycle approaches in the context of different organizational structures, with demonstrated programming expertise in at least one language among C, C++, Java and VB.Net.
  • Foster the development, adoption and sustained use of standards of excellence for software engineering practices.
  • Speak and write effectively and think critically about a wide range of issues arising in the context of working constructively on software projects.

Through a combination of design, quality, programming, and management, this online software engineering program works with students to ensure their abilities to deliver reliable software to increasingly large, complex, and international end markets.

The Program also addresses current trends in programming, development, and management.
