Abstract -- This paper describes the major trends and events in the history of Master of
Software Engineering programs. Productivity statistics are reported, and curricula are
compared. Special attention is given to the pioneering role of some of the early
programs, such as Wang Institute of Graduate Studies and Carnegie Mellon University.
1 Introduction
This paper describes some of the early history of graduate software engineering
programs in the United States. It is incomplete in that data about several programs is
missing. I hope to collect that data eventually and publish a more complete version of this
history.
The focus in this paper is on programs with the title "Master of Software Engineering
(MSE)" or "Master of Science in Software Engineering (MSSE)". For historical reasons a
few other programs are included. This does not mean that no other graduate software
engineering programs have existed. Several schools offer software engineering tracks
within traditional computer science or systems engineering graduate degrees. However, it
