Master's Degrees in Software Engineering

A candidate for a Master’s Degree in Software Engineering may proceed by one of two routes: thesis-oriented (M.A.Sc.) or course-oriented (M.Eng.).

M. Eng. Degree


Each student’s background will be assessed and his/her program of study designed to ensure appropriate depth and breadth in Software Engineering.

Students must successfully complete the equivalent of six graduate courses. These include three core courses in Software Engineering, with the remaining courses to be chosen from annual lists published by the department. Students must also produce a major study report containing independent work that demonstrates knowledge of how to do Software Engineering at an advanced level.
