Over the past few decades, because of the growing use of computers in every aspect of society, the need for qualified software engineers has grown drastically. Since the graduates from the undergraduate programs offered in the computer field cannot possibly meet this demand, it becomes a necessity to educate graduates from other disciplines in the area of software engineering. In addition, the graduates from computer science/engineering fields do not have sufficient knowledge in one of the fastest growing branches of the computer field: software engineering.
The Software Engineering graduate program of Atilim University aims to help computer engineering/science graduates to gain expertise in the area of software engineering, and also to give sufficient technical background to graduates from other disciplines enabling them to gain knowledge and experience to work as software engineers.

The Software Engineering graduate program is offered in two options: with thesis and without thesis. The aim of the thesis option is to prepare the students for PhD programs while motivating them to perform research in the area of software engineering. In the second option, the objective is to educate students so that they can work as software engineers. The courses are divided into three groups in both options: Software, Computer Science and Electives courses. In this framework, students should take at least 3 courses from the software group and one course from the computer science group. Throughout the program, a maximum number of two undergraduate courses could be taken with the approval of the advisor. In this case, for each of these undergraduate courses a "special studies" course should be taken which are denoted by "SE580 Special Studies I" and "SE581 Special Studies II". The required number of courses and credits in both options are given below:
Graduate Program with Thesis (21 Credits - 120 ECTS)
Graduate Program without Thesis (30 credits - 90 ECTS)
No work experience is required.
"The Academic Excellence Scholarship can provide up to a 50 % reduction in tuition per semester.
