SJSU Computer Engineering is a top-ranked program among public institutions offering BS and MS degrees, by US News and World Report. (ranked #1 in 2014).

The department provides hands-on learning experience in cutting edge areas for computer and software engineering.

The computer engineering and software engineering programs prepare you for a professional career at companies from small startups to multinational corporations.

MS, Software Engineering, Concentration in Cyber security

Why this course - The Masters of Science in Software Engineering program is one of several degree programs provided by the Computer Engineering department at SJSU. The program provides students with an educational experience that builds on traditional computer science and engineering, and then takes an integrative approach to software engineering. With the increased globalization of the software development workforce there is less programming being performed in the United States. Therefore it becomes increasingly important that graduates understand developing technologies and architectures and their influence on software engineering processes, where large-scale design is pre-eminent, and where component integration is the standard mode of development. The program offers a strong testing and quality assurance component.

The software industry increasingly requires those with a suitable engineering background for their cutting edge projects. Graduates with an MS in Software Engineering can expect to find significant opportunities in software development, management, and marketing.

A wide variety of computing equipment is available. Courses are usually conducted using the specialized equipment at the department, with a variety of sophisticated workstations and state-of-the-art software engineering tools.

The Masters of Science in Software Engineering program requirements include degree core, specialization classes, electives, and a culminating experience.

Future - Five specializations are provided:

  • Enterprise Software Technologies
  • Cloud Computing and Virtualization
  • Software Systems Engineering
  • Networking Software
  • Data Science
  • Cyber security.
