  • Objectives
    The Master of Software Systems Engineering is designed to: * Provide a solid foundation for students who want to develop their career in the broad field of computing * Provide a thorough understanding of key areas of Computer Science * Provide an introduction to research skills in a selected area * Improve computer related oral and written communication skills
  • Academic Title
    Master of Software Systems Engineering
  • Course description
    Eight subjects of 12.5 points each or six subjects of 12.5 points plus a small research project of 25 points (433-699 Minor Research Project). The research project involves an investigation and preparation of a substantial written report under the supervision of an academic staff member. Enrolment in this subject requires the approval of the Program Director. Students must complete a minimum of six subjects at a 600-level from those taught by the Department.

    Students should note that not all subjects are offered every year. Students seeking definitive details should contact the department prior to commencement. International students should check subject availability before commencing the course.
