Software Engineering Graduate School Rankings: List of Top Schools
Most types of computer software, including games, applications and operating systems, are designed and developed by software engineers. Large organizations may also employ software engineers to manage their computing systems. Two of the top schools for software engineering programs include the Carnegie Mellon University and the University of Texas at Austin.
Top Graduate Programs in Software Engineering
1. Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, PA
Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) is a private research university established by the entrepreneur Andrew Carnegie. The Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) named CMU the nation's second-best graduate school for software engineering in the June 2007 issue of Communications of the ACM.
The School of Computer Science's Master of Software Engineering (MSE) program, which aims to train leaders in the industry, is offered to applicants with 2-5 years of work experience. Those with less work experience may consider the master's degree program in information technology with a concentration in software engineering. Both programs are offered in full-time, distance learning and part-time formats. An embedded software engineering master's degree program and a dual degree program leading to an MSE and a Master of Business Administration are also available.
