Oklahoma City University to Add Software Engineering Degree This Fall

19 Jun

Oklahoma City University will be introducing a new degree program this fall.  Software engineering is one of the fastest-growing job markets in the country, and The Wall Street Journal recently ranked it as the best job in the United States.  Undergraduate students will soon be able to pursue a degree in that field, and the graduate program is expected to be approved soon as well.

The software engineering courses will focus on the application of engineering to software development. Students will be able to study how to develop, operate, and maintain various software programs through a more quantifiable approach.  To help students prepare for and thrive in the field, the OCU degree will include a combination of business courses and software engineering courses.  The business aspect of the degree will provide the students with a marketing background, so they can successfully communicate and deal with high-quality companies in the future.

According to Steve Agee, Dean of OCU’s Meinders School of Business, the university had been receiving a lot of inquiries about the subject, which is what caused them to create a degree program for the next school year.  Even though the degree is new, rather than bringing in new professors for the program, the university will be pulling instructors from seven school faculties to teach the courses. Three professors will be taken from the computer science department, and the other three will come from the information technology department.
