Program description

Because software is at the heart of technical function, it is important to most current technology. With the rising reliance on current, advanced technologies, there is a growing demand for professionals who can develop software, comprehend and support computer system architecture and design, and provide distributed services—tasks performed by software engineers.

Given the planned and rapid growth of software-related industries in the coming decades, there is an increasing demand for professionals with these abilities. As a result, Memorial University's new Master of Applied Science in Software Engineering degree is timely. The MAScSE, which is jointly offered by the Faculty of Science and the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science, gives students the skills they need to excel in this dynamic profession.

The Master of Applied Science in Software Engineering is a four-term, course-based Master's degree designed for students having a background in computer science or computer engineering who want to specialise in software engineering.

Students will have a comprehensive overview of the major areas of Software Engineering as well as in-depth knowledge in certain of these areas when they finish. Students will gain practical experience through course projects and a large team capstone project.
