Masters in Software Engineering

Accredited programs will offer students who are studying software engineering a fundamental curriculum that at least consists of networking, programming, administration, security, web systems, computer architecture and maintenance. Advanced Masters in Software Engineering courses are built upon these fundamentals. Specific class names that you can look out for include software databases, object oriented programming, software development and systems management. You will also be allotted a number of electives to take. Prerequisites for entering master's degree programs are generally the completion of a bachelor's degree in a related field, like computer science, practical world experience in programming, and other base-knowledge courses to improve your understanding of the material after your acceptance into the program.

Software engineering is an interesting subject to many, especially for those who have obtained similar degrees at the undergraduate level. If you want to move on to graduate level studies, internet classes could be your best option. You can study at night, in the morning, or any other time that is convenient for you. Even if you have a full- or part-time job keeping you busy, you can complete courses at your own pace.

Many job openings are offered to software engineers. A few examples include positions as software developers, network engineers, engineering managers and computer architects. According to reports made by the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, the mean starting salary of a software engineer following the completion of Software Engineering Master's Programs ranged from about $68,000 to $100,000 in 2006. The Occupational Information Network indicates that the growth in this career field is projected to be much greater than the national average of occupational growth. As the field evolves, an estimated 300,000 job openings will become available within the next few years, ranging from temporary positions to part-time and full-time work.
