MSIT-ESE Academic Program

ESE Program Overview

The MSIT-ESE is an academic program in the suite of software engineering professional master’s degree programs at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU). The purpose of the MSIT-ESE program is to prepare students for positions as engineers building embedded software intensive systems. The program is a joint degree program shared between the Institute for Software Research (ISR) and the Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) department. Students in the MSIT-ESE program take a combination of courses from ISR and ECE.

A minimum of 135 unit hours are required for graduation. Students often earn more however, especially those pursuing the 16-month program option. It should also be noted that the MSIT-ESE program includes a mandatory project course. The Practicum is a team oriented, self-directed project where students have the opportunity to apply classroom material to a real-world project.

Overview of Collaboration

The SRM-CMU collaboration allows for the 12-month program option. In the SRM-CMU collaboration, students will start the program at the SRM campus in Chennai and will complete the program requirements at the CMU campus in Pittsburgh. It is assumed that the students will possess an undergraduate degree in computer science, software engineering, electrical engineering, or similar. Students must also have some project experience prior to beginning the joint CMU-SRM MSIT-ESE program. SRM applicants to the program will be mutually reviewed and accepted by CMU and SRM faculty.
