The Bachelor of Science in Software Engineering (SE) prepares students in the theory and methods of systematic and rigorous construction of software for industrial, scientific, and commercial applications.
Software engineering concerns the design, implementation, testing and maintenance of software. Software engineers design and develop many types of software, including business applications, embedded systems, computer games, operating systems, and networks. According to the 2010-2011 Occupational Outlook Handbook from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, more than 295,200 new positions will be created for software engineers over the 2008 to 2018 period. This represents a 32% increase in employment for software engineers versus a projected loss of 12,300 jobs (-3%) for computer programmers.
The U.A. Whitaker College of Engineering will apply to the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, Inc. for accreditation of the B.S. in Software Engineering after the first students graduate in May 2015.

For All Majors: Students are strongly encouraged to select required lower division electives that will enhance their general education coursework and that will support their intended baccalaureate degree program. Students should consult with an academic advisor in their major degree area.
Transfer credit will normally be accepted from regionally accredited institutions. Transfer credit received by The Office of Admissions will be evaluated for appropriate credit toward specific requirements in the student's degree program. Registration assistance will be provided at transfer orientation based on the evaluation of official transcripts and degree applicable transfer credit. Admitted students may view transfer credit and access a Degree Evaluation in the Student Records section of the Gulfline Accounts.
