The advanced certificate in software engineering comprises five graduate-level courses that give students the knowledge and skills to compete successfully in the software development arena. Students who want to continue their studies may apply these courses to the MS program in computer science.

NYU-Poly, responding to the importance of high-quality software development and integration industry, offers a certificate program in software engineering. This course module provides the knowledge and skills needed to compete successfully in this arena. Topics covered include object-oriented software design, software validation and project management.

The software-engineering certificate is a series of five graduate-level courses. Three required core courses prepare the computer-science professional for a career in advanced software-development. In addition, students choose two other courses from a variety of rotating electives. The elective courses cover areas of current interest to the software-engineering community and allow students to customize their education.

Electives: 6 Credits


* Highly recommended

Entrance requirements for the certificate program are the same as for the MS program. Students who have superior academic credentials but who lack sufficient background in computer science take two prerequisite courses (CS 5303 Introduction to Programming and Problem Solving  and CS 5403 Data Structures and Algorithms ).
