Year of establishment



  • The Masters of Science in Software Engineering program is one of several degree programs provided by the Computer Engineering department at SJSU
  • The program provides students with an educational experience that builds on traditional computer science and engineering, and then takes an integrative approach to software engineering
  • With the increased globalization of the software development workforce there is less programming being performed in the United States. Therefore it becomes increasingly important that graduates understand developing technologies and architectures and their influence on software engineering processes, where large-scale design is pre-eminent, and where component integration is the standard mode of development. The program offers a strong testing and quality assurance component
  • Four specializations are provided in this program: Enterprise Software Technologies, Cloud Computing and Virtualization, Software Systems Engineering and Networking Software
  • The program offers specializations in Enterprise Software Technologies, Cloud Computing and Virtualization, Software Systems Engineering, Data Science, Cybersecurity and Networking Software
  • The Masters of Science in Software Engineering program requirements include degree core, specialization classes, electives, and a culminating experience. Six specializations are provided: Enterprise Software Technologies, Cloud Computing and Virtualization, Software Systems Engineering, Networking Software, Data Science, and Cybersecurity
