• What You Need to Know About Open Source

    One issue of major significance to students in our software development and computer sciences master’s programs is open source. Open source is an ongoing driving force behind a number of innovate and revolutionary programs, and to survive in the industry, you have to understand it and its impacts.

    Open source software development lets you harness the brain power of developers and engineers everywhere to further your program’s goals. In fact, making software that is open source is a requirement to stay relevant and to evolve with the demands of the people using your program. Nearly every successful software platform has open source incorporated into their systems. Doing so not only makes it easier to keep up with rapidly changing technology but also makes you a larger community of developers who can be helpful to your career in a number of ways.

    At Seattle University College of Science and Engineering, you will tackle issues like these as you work towards your graduate degree or graduate certificate . If you’re ready to find out more about our masters programs and admission requirements, please call (888) 457-5227.
