The MSS is a graduate level degree program administered through UBC's Institute for Computing, Information and Cognitive Systems (ICICS), in collaboration with the departments of Computer Science (Faculty of Science) and Electrical and Computer Engineering (Faculty of Applied Science). It is one of many graduate degrees offered through the Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies.
In 16 demanding months, MSS students complete a masters degree consisting of three terms of coursework (30 credits) and a mandatory four-month industry internship. At the end of the program, you will have gained a broad understanding of software systems development and implementation; not just from a programmer’s of software engineer’s viewpoint, but from a manager’s perspective as well.
The MSS program was 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 your 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 – our students provide the desire and focus. We seek applicants that are mature, bright, and motivated individuals, and able to give full priority to their studies. The rigorous nature of the MSS program requires that students eliminate, as much as possible, all other studies and professional work during the course of the degree.
- Degree: Master of Software Systems - Specialization: Software Systems - Subject: Information Technology - Mode of delivery: On campus - Program components: Coursework only - Faculty: Faculty of Applied Science
Successful applicants must hold a bachelor's degree (in subjects other than Computer Science or Computer Engineering). In addition students must also have some basic computer programming skills, as well as computer program design and data structures knowledge equivalent to that offered in the Department of Computer Science courses CPSC 213, 221, 260, 310, 311, or 313.
