Education for Success
AUBG’s Master of Science in Software Engineering program builds upon the 20 years of experience that the American University in Bulgaria has obtained in offering quality education and training, according to American standards, to Bulgarian and regional job markets. In 2010, according to a survey by the Bulgarian Ministry of Education, AUBG ranked as the No. 1 university in the country in terms of graduates’ employment prospects and the incomes they earn.
The MSSE program stresses a modern, creative approach to software development and management, and draws on the strengths of existing AUBG programs and outstanding faculty members in computer science. The MSSE curriculum emphasizes a combination of the technical and managerial aspects of software engineering, including soft skills such as excellent communication ability and teamwork. It offers a critical blend of modern industry standards and practices such as UML, agile development, and design patterns together with managerial insights into innovation and entrepreneurship.
A successful team leader or project manager in the software development industry needs to possess high-level expertise in software development, a clear understanding of market needs for software applications, vision, and the managerial skills to plan, lead, and implement complex software projects. At AUBG we will train the gamut of skills necessary for becoming a successful industry leader, including critical thinking, communication and presentation skills, problem-solving ability, and a can-do attitude.
AUBG’s successful experience in offering liberal arts training to local and regional students will be transferred to the MSSE and guarantees achievement of those objectives.
Important: AUBG has decided to re-evaluate the implementation of the MSSE program, which includes postponing the launch of the program. AUBG will review the program's delivery model to provide more flexible student and employer options for enrollment and completion of the program. The university will continue to collaborate with employers, professional associations, and software engineers to develop a model suited to today’s software engineering environment.
