Master of Science in Software Engineering
- Global Campus: Yes
- 93 TOEFL Minimum score
The Master of Science in Software Engineering (MSSE) is a terminal, non-thesis, online degree that is offered through WSU’s Global Campus. The asynchronous delivery mode makes the program equally suitable for working professionals looking for part-time, slower-pace participation as well as full-time graduate students seeking a quicker-pace to completion for a professional MS degree. The MSSE program focuses on advanced courses in Software Engineering such as software design and development, software testing and validation, software maintenance, software security, and software management and integration-all specialties of high demand among the State’s computing and IT industries. In addition, the MSSE degree includes engineering management courses that will prepare graduates for a successful team and project management.

Student Learning Outcomes:
All graduates will be able to:
- Students have general mastery of their field of study in Software Engineering.
- Students have mastery of knowledge in a specialized area.
- Students are able to conduct state-of-the-art research in a specialize area that makes a contribution to the knowledge base.
- Students can effectively communicate their research in oral and written form.
- Students are able to disseminate research results in archival literature.
The online master’s courses are designed and taught by faculty members at WSU’s world-renowned School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. Those faculty members include experts in computer science, data science, software maintenance and evolution, software testing, and security.
Employment in the area of software engineering is growing rapidly with jobs such as Software Development Engineer, Software Developer, and Software Engineer growing about 87%, 56% and 74%, respectively, in Washington alone in 2012-2013. It is expected to continue this trajectory through 2020. Software Engineers typically earn six-figure salaries. Graduates can choose to pursue a career as Software Developer, Software Engineer, Requirements Engineer, Quality Assurance Engineer, Project Manager, and many others.
