Software Engineering Graduate Certificate

The Software Engineering graduate certificate program is designed to produce software engineers who will participate in and lead development projects. It enables students to plan, design, and implement software applications. The program emphasizes the object-oriented method, but also covers structured techniques, project management, and testing. C++ and Java are the principal object-oriented languages used, although knowledge of Java is not a prerequisite. The program is suited both to programmers seeking professional growth and to software engineers who want to learn the object-oriented paradigm.

Students who complete the Graduate Certificate in Software Engineering will be able to demonstrate:

  • Advanced knowledge of software projects, including requirements analysis, object-oriented methods, design patterns, testing, and maintenance.
  • Proficiency in software project management, software design, Unified Modeling Language usage, and computer-aided software engineering.
  • Competence sufficient to participate in and lead the planning, requirements analysis, design, and timely implementation of quality software applications within budget.
