Scholarships
DescriptionOur students are trained as engineers with a core specialization in the development of software. McMaster’s Software Engineering program is unique in that it provides students with a solid grounding in software development for supporting engineering applications and for controlling physical devices.

Software Engineers are ultimately responsible for the usability, safety, and reliability of their products. For example, the SE must make sure that the system and its documentation are consistent, that the hardware configuration is appropriate to the task, that programs will behave as required, and that the system will meet all real-time deadlines and other performance requirements. Because they must understand what is going on outside the computer, not just the software, the McMaster programme includes much more than software design.
