BS in Software Engineering Curriculum
Note: a minimum grade of C- is required for all computer science and software engineering course prerequisites, unless otherwise stated.
Within the policies of the School of Engineering, the Software Engineering program enforces credit limits during the academic terms. Exceeding 18 credits in the fall or spring semesters, 4 credits in the January term, or 10 credits in each summer term requires the approval of the dean's office.
