Program Details

In their Department at Concordia University Montréal, we offer two types of Master's degrees in Computer Science and two in Software Engineering. One is based on course work preparing the students for broader knowledge and the other is Thesis-based which trains students more in depth on a chosen thesis topic.

Software engineers apply engineering principles and practices to design, test, operate and maintain computer software. Graduates of the Master's program are trained to work on all aspects of the software product life cycle. They learn how to develop high-capacity computer software in a controlled, systematic and quantifiable manner and ensure it is reliable, efficient and economic.
