The Master of Software Engineering Program at Seattle University after Six Years

  • Everald E. Mills


In 1977–78 Seattle University initiated a series of discussions with representatives from local business and industry. In those discussions, software engineering emerged as a critical area of need for specialized educational programs. As a result of this cooperative effort, Seattle University established the Master of Software Engineering [MSE] program. This program is now in its seventh year of operation and has produced four graduating classes. Rather than preparing students to enter the software engineering profession, the MSE program is a way for those already engaged in software engineering to improve their educational background and technical skills. The program is intended to cover both the technical and management aspects of software engineering. This paper discusses the philosophy, objectives, and implementation of the program.
