What will I learn?

Exceptional students are invited to pursue an Accelerated Master of Science in Software Engineering (MSSE) degree program. In this option, up to nine hours of graduate coursework may be taken to fulfill undergraduate technical elective requirements and specified elective courses required for their undergraduate degree. These hours will count toward both the BS and MSSE degree requirements provided that the student is enrolled in the accelerated MSSE option and receives a "B" or better in the course. Graduate courses taken in satisfaction of this program must be selected from the list of approved courses, targeted substitutions, or by arrangement with the Accelerated MSSE program coordinator.

Undergraduate students may apply to the Accelerated MSSE option by submitting an application to the Accelerated MSSE program coordinator. Students are eligible to apply if they are enrolled in an undergraduate program in Software Engineering, Computer Engineering or Computer Science, or have enrolled in the Computer Science Minor course of study. Undergraduate students may also be accepted for the Accelerated MSSE option if they can demonstrate adequate knowledge and preparation equivalent to completing a Computer Science Minor. Students applying must have completed 88 credit hours toward their BS degree and must have a 3.2 minimum GPA to be admitted to the program. The application must accompany 2 letters of recommendation from faculty in both the undergraduate and graduate programs to indicate (1) the applicant’s potential to successfully complete graduate-level work, and (2) evidence that the applicant has attained the foundational competencies for graduate degree studies. Students will be dropped from the program if their GPA falls below a 3.0. Students enrolled in this accelerated option on the basis of completing a Computer Science Minor will be dropped from the program if that Minor is not completed.
