Software Engineering BS

Our strong software engineering program, led by highly credentialed faculty committed to undergraduate education, offers a project-based curriculum with great faculty/student collaboration in solving real-world problems.


The yearlong capstone experience allows students to develop software for real clients. The laboratory and instructional facilities support and encourage creativity and teamwork. Oswego’s software engineering program — the first of SUNY — provides a systems-oriented curriculum encompassing software requirements, design, construction, testing, maintenance, configuration management, engineering management, engineering process, tools and quality assurance.

Join the Computer Science Association, which sponsors guest speakers, conducts programming contests, arranges tours of companies that hire graduates and provides opportunities for advanced students to tutor and mentor first-year students. Develop software for real clients during your year-long capstone experience. Pursue an internship or co-op opportunity in a company or institution and gain software development experience in finance, defense, manufacturing, government or other fields.
