<p>For the past nine years, Carnegie Mellon has been developing and refining a master of software engineering (MSE) curriculum. In the process, the university has had to determine how the curriculum would differ from traditional ones, what kinds of hands-on experience would be offered, and how much specialization to require. The result is a novel approach that aims to cultivate future leaders in software engineering. CMU's program combines a long-term, mentored software development project with an unusual core curriculum that stresses broad-based models and problem-solving skills. </p> <p>CMU's experience is that its graduates return to work with technical knowledge, well-developed skills, and a breadth of experience that prepares them to be agents of change in the industry. </p>
