About the Program
Software development and engineering at Pace University
The Seidenberg School’s software engineering program was founded in 2010 and was the first of its kind in the New York City metropolitan area. The program offers a Master of Science in Software Development and Engineering, as well as advanced certificate programs in software development and system security. Students may also pursue the Master of Science in Software Development and Engineering online. In the near future, we plan to add computer engineering to the program.
Over the past 60 years, the use of computers and computer applications have grown at a staggering rate. Software plays a critical role in every aspect of our lives: finance, banking, government, transportation, education, and entertainment – to name just a few. The size and complexity of software applications has grown dramatically, and billions are spent every year to develop and maintain these applications.
Through the software engineering program, the Seidenberg School aims to address the need for talented software engineers in across every industry. We have been named a Registered Education Provider by IEEE and are the only school with this recognition on the East Coast. Our graduate students have the opportunity to become Certified Software Engineers by taking the appropriate IEEE exams as part of our curriculum, which aids tremendously in getting a job after graduation.
Classes are comprised of a broad spectrum of software development and engineering topics. Faculty teach subjects like software design, quality assurance, formal software development, security, and more.
