The undergraduate Software Engineering program at PSU is structured into a number of modules, comprising the following types of courses:

  • University requirements
  • College requirements
  • Program requirements

The program requirements are further divided into:

  • Software Engineering core courses
  • Software Engineering elective courses

All courses are theoretically available at any time during the period of study, but to take a course students must complete its prerequisites and satisfy registration conditions. Actual offerings for elective courses depend on the level of demand and the actual resources.

All courses of the program requirements, except the "core" courses, must be selected according to a set of rules and according to individual desires and future career aspirations. Note that "core'' courses are compulsory for all students majoring in the field.
