Program Description

Software Engineering represents the fastest growing segment of software professionals - men and women who solve problems and issues in the development of mission-critical software to meet the needs of business and industry. The undergraduate program in Software Engineering, which is the only one offered at a public university in the state of Georgia, has the primary objective of preparing a new generation of software developers focused on the engineering of software systems; that is, those systems that meet specified requirements, that are built with mission critical quality levels, and that are within cost and schedule requirements.

This program is a part of the College of Computing and Software Engineering .
