Gain the Skills to Keep Projects on Track
Project management is about the process of setting, planning, organizing and overseeing a company’s goals, and achieving them on schedule and on budget. Your Master of Science in Software Engineering with Project Management Specialization from UHCL will give you a strong foundation in software engineering with the additional skill employers are seeking: the expertise to effectively determine a project’s scope, create schedules and budgets, and handle all the elements needed to deliver an excellent final result.
Fuse Your Technical Expertise with Corporate Leadership
You’ll be best prepared for this program with an undergraduate degree in Computer
Science. Your studies will address the foundations, methodologies and tools used in
the management, planning, design and engineering of software systems. By providing
a careful balance between theory and practice, this degree plan prepares you for key
software positions in industry, government and institutions where software engineering
has become a focal activity. To complete your degree, you’ll master several core areas
of software engineering to be mastered, and you may choose the extended course work
option or thesis option.
