The Bachelor of Science in Software Engineering degree prepares students for a software engineering positions in industries ranging from aerospace to video game development.
With real-world, hands-on projects like flight control for autonomous aircraft or power control in a hybrid automobile, this program gives students a chance to develop the knowledge and skills they need to create, test, and evaluate software applications and systems. They also gain a clear understanding of network integrity and learn about the technical aspects of cyber security to keep those systems safe.
The Bachelor of Science in Software Engineering degree is housed in the Department of Computer, Electrical, and Software Engineering in the College of Engineering.

The Bachelor of Science in Software Engineering degree can be earned in eight semesters assuming appropriate background and full-time enrollment. Successful completion of a minimum of 128 credit hours is required. Students entering this program should have demonstrated a competence in mathematics and science (preferably physics). They should be prepared to enter Calculus I, having demonstrated proficiency in algebra and trigonometry. Students can prepare for this program by taking MA 140, College Algebra, and MA 142, Trigonometry, prior to taking MA 241. For those students who have not taken physics in high school, it is recommended that PS 113, Technical Physics I, be taken prior to PS 150. The Software Engineering program is designed to prepare students to work as part of a team on the development of software systems. Software engineering concepts, methods, and techniques are integrated through the curriculum. The curriculum includes courses in general education, math and science, and computing. The latter is divided into computing fundamentals, advanced concepts, applied computing, and software engineering. In addition, a student can acquire a minor or a concentration in a domain area of interest.
Students should be aware that several courses in each academic year may have prerequisites and/or corequisites. Check the course description section of this catalog before registering for classes to ensure requisite sequencing. The B.S. degree requires that students have a minimum cumulative grade point average of 2.00 in all CEC, EE, SE, CS, and EGR courses that fulfill any degree requirement.
