PROGRAM DETAILS

The Master of Science in Software Engineering (MSSE) program is the first of its kind in Ohio. The program is the successor to the Graduate Certificate Program in Software Engineering and is intended for both practicing professionals, as well as full-time students in the areas of software engineering, computer engineering, electrical engineering, computer science, or information management.

Preparatory Program

Students are expected to demonstrate proficiency in the following prerequisite knowledge areas.  Students must complete prerequisite courses in the areas they lack profiency, in addition to the requirements for the MSSE degree.  These prerequisite courses do not count toward the requirements for the MSSE program.  Those who took one or more equivalent courses can have the corresponding requirements waived but must get a prior authorization by the academic/research advisor.
