Software Engineering - BS
Please note that this program will not be offered on the North Miami Campus for the 2018-2019 Academic Year.
The Software Engineering bachelor's degree program prepares graduates for challenges in the diverse, fast-paced and rapidly evolving field of software engineering. This curriculum provides students with the opportunity to significantly develop their technical skills, leadership abilities, project management skills, building skills and problem-solving abilities. Students are well positioned to analyze system requirements; choose appropriate technologies and development techniques; implement solutions; test, validate and secure software products; and document development efforts.
Upon completion of the program, graduates are expected to:
- Apply knowledge of math, science, engineering and contemporary developments in the fields of software programming, networking, system design, computer science and project management.
- Use software engineering concepts and processes to identify and analyze problems, and to formulate, implement and test software-based solutions that meet required specifications.
- Incorporate historical context and emerging developments in the fields of software architecture, programming languages, integrated development environments, network programming paradigms and application domains to create adaptable and efficient software solutions that reflect ethical considerations and global awareness.
- Use the techniques, skills and modern tools necessary for software engineering best practices.
- Integrate knowledge, tools and problem-solving skills to carry out the design, creation, maintenance and testing of state-of-the-art software solutions.
The Software Engineering program allows students to develop a solid philosophy based on sound computer science theory, technology as a tool for business solutions, and state-of-the-art labs and development environments. Graduates of this program are prepared to work in private, public or governmental organizations within various industries, such as retail, hospitality, finance or technology.
The program offers a three-course focus area that students can use to tailor the program to hone their skills in related technology areas. These courses are determined through discussion with the student's faculty advisor and recorded on the student's degree requirements.
Seniors participate in one of these experiential education options: technical project team or internship. Students apply for the technical project teams and are placed according to their qualifications, work availability and the best fit for their program of study. If students choose to select internship, they are able to complete the experience at a university-approved internship site.
