Master of Science in Software Engineering

The master of science in software engineering serves students who have earned a bachelor’s degree in software engineering, computer science or a related discipline, as well as working software engineers who want to broaden their perspective while deepening their skills in software development. The program also accepts students who are already competent programmers wanting to prepare for careers in software engineering. Courses in this program are taught at a level that assumes that all students have a technical undergraduate degree and significant programming experience.

See the FIT catalog for information on the Master of Science in Software Engineering.

Florida Tech maintains a listing of its graduate policies, available through the Office of Graduate Programs.  These policies apply to both Thesis and Non-Thesis students.

Thesis Option:

Master's degree students who are pursuing the Thesis Option should review the Thesis and Dissertation Checklist to ensure that they are on track for graduation.

Non-Thesis Option:

The comprehensive exam is an alternative to writing a thesis if a masters student elects to. The comprehensive examination is offered about the tenth week of classes every Fall and Spring semester. Students must be in their last term as a full-time student and have a 3.0 GPA to register. If students have completed their course work, they do not need to be enrolled in classes to take the comprehensive exam.
