Master of Software Systems

P. Nasiopoulos, Program Director

The Master of Software Systems is a graduate-level degree program designed specifically for people who hold a science or engineering degree in a field other than computer science or computer engineering. The program is an opportunity to expand existing skills and develop them for a career in a software systems environment. UBC's internationally known faculty and its top-notch facilities provide the expertise and atmosphere, and our students provide the desire and focus in a rigorous sixteen month program. M.S.S. students complete a master's degree consisting of three terms of coursework (30 credits) and a four-month industry internship. At the end of the program, students will have gained a broad understanding of software systems development and implementation; not just from a software engineer's viewpoint, but from a manager's perspective as well.
