WSU adds software engineering program at WSU NPS at Everett


Last year, the legislature approved the expansion of academic programs at WSU North Puget Sound at Everett. It was great news to see today’s Herald Business Journal story sharing that students can now apply for a software engineering program. Classes start this fall. These students can expect to receive quality instruction and advanced courses in software development, testing, maintenance, and management – all skills needed in the computer and IT industries. The leadership of the Washington State Legislature in advancing educational opportunities is deeply appreciated by families, students, businesses, and residents of the state.

EVERETT — Students can now apply for a software engineering program to be offered starting this fall at Washington State University in Everett.

The number of students accepted into the program depends upon the level of interest. It will be the fifth degree program offered at WSU North Puget Sound.

Software engineering is a two-year, full-time bachelor’s degree completion program available for transfer students. Students will attend lecture and laboratory courses at the University Center located on the Everett Community College campus.

“WSU North Puget Sound at Everett, working with all the University Center partners, is creating more and more exciting opportunities for students in Snohomish, Island and Skagit counties to pursue their higher-education dreams and succeed in the 21st Century workforce,” Everett Mayor Ray Stephanson said in a statement

The software engineering courses will be taught in person by WSU faculty, via interactive video from WSU Pullman and online through the university’s Global Campus program.

The degree focuses on advanced courses in software development, testing, maintenance and management — all specialties of high demand among computer and IT industries.

Students who apply early have the best opportunities for financial aid.
WSU began offering classes for a mechanical engineering degree through the University Center in 2012. The center is a WSU-managed collaboration of public and private colleges based on the EvCC campus.

Two years later, WSU launched bachelor’s degree programs in electrical engineering, communication and hospitality-business management.

In June, the university received money to add courses in software engineering and data analytics.
