Career - what can you do with a software engineering degree?
Software engineering majors are required to complete one departmentally approved co-op experience. Students receive academic credit, valuable practical experience, and good pay for co-op experiences while growing both personally and professionally.
Software engineering majors must meet one of the following admission criteria:
- An SAT math score of 550 or higher or an ACT math score of 22 or higher.
Students not meeting these criteria will need to take appropriate math course(s) at the University before declaring their major to Software Engineering. Many high schools do not offer courses in computer programming or computer science, and incoming students are not expected to have such a background.
The Bachelor of Science in software engineering requires basic computer science courses and advanced software engineering courses. The degree program has an emphasis on development of software and computer applications. Students are required to complete an internship/co-op experience and a capstone project course for exposure to real-world software engineering projects.
