The MSE offered by the Seattle University College of Science and Engineering
was developed with the goal of making it easier for working professionals
to acquire their graduate degrees. Our classes are offered in the evenings,
and the program focuses on problem solving and teamwork. Read on to learn
about the project requirements for our
Master of Software Engineering program.
Each team is advised to meet a minimum of once per week to review their
work, plan for the upcoming week, and assess the project’s status.
A brief write-up containing a list of the members present, a description
of work accomplished, a list of action items, and a preview for the coming
week should be prepared for each meeting and sent to the team members.
Once per month, each team must provide the faculty advisor with a project
status report form, the timely submission of which is essential for grading.
Throughout the project, the teams are expected to follow the best software
engineering practices by documenting the project planning, architecture
and design, management, requirements, and implementation. Also, each team
must give a review board presentation at the end of the fall and winter
quarter that covers the team’s progress, their status assessment,
and an updated plan of completion.
In June, each project team must prepare a final presentation that includes
a demonstration of the software, along with a description of the project work.
Research Component or Experience Report
With the help of their faculty advisor, each team is required to identify
a research component that is relative to the project or to produce an
experience report describing the team’s experience while developing
