About

The Software Engineering program offered by Shippensburg University of Pennsylvania sacrifices some of the breadth of the BS in Computer Science to focus on what it takes to build really big software systems.

Overview

The Software Engineering program offered by Shippensburg University of Pennsylvania has courses in the design of systems from small to very large (too large to fit on one machine) and in software process management. The capstone experience is a team development project on a large-scale system. Graduates of this program are sought after by companies and government agencies that develop software.

Software engineering graduates are sought by organizations that have rigorous demands on their software. This includes military applications and fault tolerant applications like airplane control systems. Also, large software development organizations employ software engineers to coordinate the activities of many software developers. This means that software engineers can work on anything from PC-based applications to large scale enterprise systems to real-time embedded control systems. Since they are well versed in computer science techniques, software engineers can work in any software development activity.

Careers in Software Engineering

Software engineering graduates are sought by organizations that have rigorous demands on their software. This includes military applications and fault tolerant applications like airplane control systems. Also, large software development organizations employ software engineers to coordinate the activities of many software developers. This means that software engineers can work on anything from PC-based applications to real-time embedded control systems. Since they are well-versed in computer science techniques, software engineers can work in any software development activity.

Most software engineers work within software development organizations. However, that doesn't mean they spend their days huddled in front of a computer. Developing software in a large organization requires that all developers work together. This means they must agree about what they are building, how they will build it, and how they will track their progress. Since these things differ from one project to the next, software engineers spend a good amount of time discussing and debating alternatives. In addition, large organizations require a wide variety of skills. In addition to software developers, they need managers, testers, marketers, and customer supporters. Software engineers can choose to provide one or more of these skills.
