Master of Science - Software Engineering

The Master of Science in Software Engineering is an industrially relevant and up-to-date program offered by the Canadian Institute of Technology (CIT) designed to equip students with the skills and knowledge to become future software engineering leaders.


Students embark on this exciting program by studying modules from the fields of computer science, electronic engineering, computer networking, and mathematics. They learn industrial practices, including the latest approaches adopted by the industry for designing, writing, debugging, and maintaining software, along with usability testing.


The heart of the program is built upon understanding what precisely the end-user wants and then developing a software solution to meet this requirement. The importance of successfully completing a project is a key aspect of this program and is duly recognized through the inclusion of the compulsory module, ‘Advanced Project Management’. This course emphasizes the comprehension of concepts and their proper application by teaching theoretical methods, principles, profilers, and debugging tools. It is reinforced by an examination of fundamental software development issues and processes in contemporary industrial practices.


Students are encouraged to cultivate a culture of critical thinking and reflection, enabling them to make informed, cost-effective, and ethical professional judgments. The program builds these skills through a solid understanding of theoretical methods, principles, tools and an examination of fundamental software development issues and processes.


To help the student seamlessly step into industry, internship opportunities are offered and built into this graduate program. This enables students to work with real-world problems utilizing emerging technologies and solutions alongside fellow software professionals. Teamwork is highly valued in the industry, and this is encouraged, with a strong emphasis on providing proper attribution and credit to the creators of the work that complete the assignment. Students on this program at CIT are encouraged to form lifelong networks as they are our future industrialists and entrepreneurs.
