Software companies in and around the U.S. are facing a challenge. They can’t find enough senior developers to fill jobs. With the Master of Science in Software Engineering, you will be able to take on that coveted senior role in a software development group and lead your team to success while earning high wages. Nationally, a master’s degree adds $10,000 or more to a developer’s annual income compared to those with a bachelor’s degree alone.
The program is adaptable for many: those already in the industry; Vermont Tech Software Engineering bachelor's students wanting an accelerated master's degree; and career changers wanting proficiency and knowledge without completing a second bachelor's degree. The program's format is designed to be accessible and flexible for both full-time students and working professionals. Take advantage of late-day and evening courses, our use of distance-education technologies, and flexible scheduling to complete the program at your own pace. Graduates are prepared to apply for Ph.D. programs and are well positioned to teach at the high school or college level.
A student with a Master of Science in Software Engineering will be able to:
Demonstrate the ability to implement and analyze sophisticated algorithms and data structures
Analyze the artifacts created during the software development process
Demonstrate knowledge of a range of distinct architectural styles, their appropriateness for problems, and possible organizational strategies for adoption
Choose, read, and evaluate academic and industry publications
