Software Engineering

The Bachelor of Science in Software Engineering degree prepares students for an entry-level software engineering position in a variety of industries, ranging from aerospace to video game development. Because of the inclusion of real-world, hands-on projects such as flight control of an autonomous aircraft or power control in a hybrid automobile, the program gives students a chance to develop the knowledge, skills and ways of thinking required to design and implement large software systems. This program is offered at the Florida campus.
