Undergraduate – Bachelor of Science in Software Engineering (BSSWE)

The Bachelor of Science in Software Engineering (BSSWE) degree at Kennesaw State is fully accredited by ABET, the Accreditation Board of Engineers and Technology, and the only public undergraduate software engineering program in Georgia. 

The bachelor’s in software engineering at KSU prepares you to be part of the new generation of software developers focused on the engineering of software systems; that is, those systems that meet specified requirements, that are built with mission-critical quality levels, and are within cost and schedule requirements. Software Engineering focuses on software aspects of computing, rather than hardware. Graduates from this program typically work in programming either testing or developing software or work as software consultants. 

Software engineering represents one of the fastest growing segments of software professionals in the United States. Businesses and industries require software engineers in the fields of medicine, the military, domestic and international communications, aerospace engineering and many more.
