About this Degree

The vision of the Master of Science in Computer Science and Software Engineering (MS-CSSE) program at Auburn University is to offer a unique opportunity for Master’s students to develop cutting-edge and in-depth knowledge of computer science. We cater to Master’s students with an outstanding aptitude and strong analytic skills for software design and development. There are four student learning outcomes (SLO 1-4) defined to implement our MS-CSSE program vision.

  • SLO 1: Students will demonstrate proficiency of core knowledge in algorithms, computer architecture, and operating systems.
  • SLO 2: Students will be able to implement and test software solutions to problems.
  • SLO 3: Students will apply reasoning and technical skills to solve problems in at least one area of research.
  • SLO 4: Students will effectively communicate with non-technical and technical audiences during software lifecycles.
