Program Information

The minor in Software Engineering provides both depth and breadth in software engineering. The minor is open to any major, but may be of special interest for students majoring computer science, electrical engineering or mechanical engineering. The minor includes foundational courses in Software Engineering, practical hands-on team design experience, and advanced coursework.

Student Learning Outcomes

Graduates will be able to:

  • Identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems that can be resolved by developing software systems.
  • Use the techniques, skills, and modern software tools for the software engineering practice.
  • Function on a design team and complete a major software engineering design project based on the knowledge and skills acquired in earlier course work and incorporating appropriate engineering standards and multiple realistic constraints.

Course Delivery Format

Standard contemporary classroom and laboratory technologies are used, as well as hands-on, project based learning.
