The NUS Master of Technology in Software Engineering is designed to meet the industry demand for software engineers who can help Singapore organisations to realise the smart nation initiatives through building robust, reliable and scalable software systems. This programme is best suited for individuals who have a few years of experience in software engineering roles and are looking to further enhance their knowledge and skills in architecting scalable, secure and smart software systems.
The MTech SE programme emphasises the skills required for architecting scalable, secure and smart systems and platforms. The focus will also be exploitation of software technologies, methodologies and management techniques. It focuses on the practical and systematic construction of software systems, using innovative and state-of-the-art techniques..
The programme will equip you with the essential knowledge and practical experience to architect, design, build and manage the delivery of robust software systems for your organisation and customers.
MTech SE candidates must successfully complete the following course components to be awarded the degree:
Student projects for MTech SE students extend over a period of 3 months for full-time students and one year for part-time students. Full-time students are allowed to conduct their project as a team-based internship if desired. The expected commitment for the project is 45 man-days per team member.
Students are evaluated through a combination of course work, project work and examinations. All students are required to complete a three-hour examination for each fundamental and specialist module taken.
Students who fail a module will be asked to withdraw. A minimum average grade across all examinations and practice assessments must be achieved to be awarded the degree.
Miscellaneous fees are typically levied on items that are either not covered or partially covered by tuition fee and grant/subsidy. All students, whether registered on a full-time or part-time basis, are charged the mandatory miscellaneous fees. These are due at the same time as the tuition fees. These fees help defray the costs of student activity, health services and insurance, campus shuttle service and other services.

There are opportunities in Singapore for most areas of IT. What you learn in terms of IT skills is not as important as what you do with it. It is the attitude and the ability to learn from mistakes, and to contribute back to the company that you work for that is likely to make more of a difference than specific IT skills.
There are two main paths for advancement in IT - either technical or management. Technical means you continue to deepen your technical area in a domain (such as system architecture, or software engineering, etc.) and you become an expert in those areas. The other is management, where you can focus on project management, outsourcing, etc.
Our internship companies often tell us that if we can give them good students as interns, it is very likely they will get a job offer at the end of the internship.
As an MTech SE graduate, you will be equipped with the essential knowledge and practical experience to architect, design, build and manage the delivery of robust software systems for organisations.
The NUS-ISS Career Services Office helps students to match jobs based on their skills and experience. There will be bi-yearly Career Fairs held for students and graduates to network with employers. However, successful employment will depend on the employers.
The average starting salary of an IT professional depends on the degree and your previous working experience. For fresh graduates with no work experience, the starting salary ranges from S$3,600 to S$3,800. Graduates with more than 3 years of work experience can expect a starting pay of S$4,000 and above.
The most important skill is to get the job done and be persistent. You need to be broad-based and the technology does not matter.
