The Master of Science in Software Engineering degree is designed to address the rapid rise in demand for professional software engineers by offering courses that provide students with the skills employer's desire and knowledge needed to make an immediate contribution to the workplace. The multidisciplinary curriculum provides an understanding of the latest technologies and tools that are being developed and encompasses behavioral, managerial and technical aspects of software engineering. This program is designed specifically for students interested in a range of application domains and prepares students for key roles in industry, government agencies, academia and other institutions.

Students select an area of concentration, or track, which allows them to take a cohesive, more specialized set of courses supporting their individual career interests.

Three tracks are available:
Computer Science: for individuals interested in a variety of technical topics pertaining to the development of software systems.
Engineering: for individuals interested in techniques to model engineering problems and offer software solutions.
Information Science and Technology: for individuals interested in applying software engineering to information systems problems in commercial organizations and other settings.

Features and benefits:

  • Rigorous study in Software Engineering courses with the option of taking courses from the Information Science and Technology, Computer Science or Engineering Programs.
  • Taught by experienced faculty who are also successful professionals in the field and are regularly recognized internationally, nationally, and within the institution for their professional achievements and scholarly work.
  • Highly interactive e-learning method designed to challenge and engage students, while remaining convenient for working professionals.

This online program draws on the diverse expertise of distinguished Drexel University faculty. In its eLearning format, the program continues Drexel University's tradition of leadership and excellence in educating engineers for successful careers since 1891.

Graduates of the program have found their degrees to be highly valued credentials. Many have advanced as senior managers and executives or became successful entrepreneurs in the field.

The program courses are organized in 10-week quarters. Breaking the year's academic work into shorter modules of 10 weeks each helps you stay focused and on track. It also adds convenience; you can take a term off during a busy period at work without losing momentum toward degree completion.
