Computer Software Engineering at Brandeis University affects almost every aspect of our daily lives, and it lies behind the most basic and the most complex processes of global industry. Advances in computing technology are producing more complicated computing problems, and solving those problems means drawing on expertise from many different domains.
Today’s software engineers need to work efficiently with teams of diverse experts to think critically and solve problems while also providing leadership to meet project goals.
Software engineers possess profound flexibility in the global job market, finding opportunities in countless fields, including banking, health care, insurance, defense, finance, education, and every other industry that uses computing technology in its endeavors.
Organizations constantly update their computer systems, and as these systems grow more powerful and more complex, sound strategic management has become increasingly important for delivering efficient software applications and computer systems.
Today’s businesses and institutions require individuals with expertise in design, assessment, and management who can also harness team leadership and superior communication skills to achieve organizational goals.The Software Engineering program in the Division of Graduate Professional Studies prepares students to lead software development projects by exploring project management techniques and by offering practical education in the latest advances in information technology.
Students learn to ensure the delivery of reliable software by studying programming, quality assessment, design, and management and by learning to provide high-quality technical leadership.Graduates with a Master of Software Engineering are prepared to:Apply a systematic, disciplined, quantifiable approach to the cost-effective development, operation and maintenance of software systems to the satisfaction of their beneficiaries.Build solutions using different technologies, architectures and life-cycle approaches in the context of different organizational structures, with demonstrated programming expertise in at least one language among Java, C++, and C#.Foster the development, adoption and sustained use of standards of excellence for software engineering practices.Communicate effectively and think critically about a wide range of issues arising in the context of working constructively on software projects.
