Software Engineering Major
The Department of Computer Science and Engineering offers three programs of study leading to the bachelor's degree: the Bachelor of Science in Computer Science, the Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering, and the Bachelor of Science in Software Engineering.
In all three programs of study, design experiences are included throughout the first three years of the curriculum and culminate in a major team-oriented project in the senior year that approximates an industrial work experience. All programs strive to provide students with opportunities to interface with the profession through avenues such as cooperative education programs, professional society activities, plant trips, special projects, and industry speakers programs.
The program in software engineering is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC) of ABET. Read more about why accreditation matters.
The ABET-accredited Bachelor of Science program in Software Engineering had a Fall 2017 enrollment of 197 students and had 28 graduates during the 2016-17 academic year.
