Software Engineering (online) (MESW)

Graduate Program
A. James Clark School of Engineering

ABSTRACT

The Professional Master of Engineering program is designed to assist engineers and technical professionals in the development of their careers and to provide the expertise needed in the rapidly changing business, government, and industrial environments.

Our Software Engineering program is concerned with developing and maintaining software systems that behave reliably and efficiently, are affordable to develop and maintain, and satisfy all the requirements that customers have defined for them. Our faculty consists of world class researchers and practitioners who apply the latest Software Engineering principles at large projects at NASA, DARPA, Raytheon, and Lockheed Martin. Courses focus on three technical areas—cybersecurity, computer engineering, and systems engineering—preparing students to help solve pressing real-world problems.

FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE

Students in this program pay a special tuition rate, which does not differ between residents and non-residents of Maryland. This rate is not fully covered by graduate assistantships, fellowships or the tuition remission. Additional graduate student fees are charged. Tuition and fees are subject to change.
