Comparing Our Computer Science and Software Engineering Degrees

If you are considering pursuing a graduate degree, whether you are fresh out of your undergraduate degree or considering a career change, the first step is matching the graduate program to your career goals. Both of our master’s programs in computer science and software engineering offer in-depth educations in their respective fields to help you build the career you want, but which one is right for you? Here is a closer look at each program to help you decide.

Master of Science in Computer Science Program

To be accepted into this program, you need an undergraduate degree in computer science or a background in computer science that the admission counselors deem to be sufficient. In some cases, students are admitted without meeting these prerequisites, but they may be required to take additional coursework. In this program, students will study computer science topics in depth while building their knowledge of algorithms, databases, systems, and software design. Each student has the opportunity for focused learning in specific areas of technical expertise. An individual graduate project provides students with experience in research or software implementation.

This program is ideal for students who wish to become software developers, make progress in their existing software industry careers, or who wish to go on to graduate studies.

Master of Software Engineering

This graduate program is much more geared towards students who wish to make career changes or advance in their existing careers. To be admitted, you must have at least two years of work experience in the software industry. The program goals include understanding the lifecycle of software development, gaining comprehensive experience with all aspects of software engineering, building leadership skills, and increasing understanding of the field through work with software progressions.

This master’s program will be a good fit if you want to move into project management, architecture, design, or development positions in your current career.
