Program Description

The Software Engineering Graduate Certificate focuses on building the foundations to design high-quality software as well as it leaves students the possibility of choosing part of their courses to make the certificate in line with their career goals. 

The Graduate Certificate in SWE assumes that students have a significant background in computing.  It will help them to expand their software engineering knowledge by building a set of skills that will prepare them for positions of more responsibility in the computing industry.

Electives (9 Credit Hours)

  • Choose three 6000-level graduate courses in SWE or CS; at least one of these must be in SWE


  • Another 6000-level SWE course may be substituted for one of the required courses if it is determined that the applicant has equivalent knowledge (e.g., a closely matching graduate course)
  • Graduates of the GCSWE are strongly encouraged to apply for the MSSWE program, and if accepted, all 6000-level courses taken for the GCSWE will count for credit towards the MSSWE.
