The MSCSSE degree is designed to accommodate the needs of working professionals. Enrollment is either part-time or full-time, with courses meeting in the evening two or three times a week. Most students complete the program in just over two years.
The Graduate Certificate in Software Design & Development (GCSDD) offers innovative preparation for students who lack formal computer science training to succeed in the MSCSSE degree program. In this series of courses, students gain advanced knowledge in programming problems using object-oriented techniques, data structures, recursive algorithms, risk management, product feasibility, modeling, UML, testing, CMMI, systems programming and much more. For those with an undergraduate degree in a different field, courses in the GCSDD serve as prerequisites for the MSCSSE admission requirements.
