Valley City State to offer software engineering programVALLEY CITY, N.D. — Valley City State University says it plans to offer the first undergraduate software engineering major in North Dakota.
The new program offering will begin with the fall semester. The school says it will deal with the design, development, testing, implementation and maintenance of software systems.
Officials say the new major was developed to meet the needs of employers throughout North Dakota and the Midwest.
VCSU faculty also have worked with the University of North Dakota and North Dakota State to ensure that students will be prepared for graduate study should they wish to pursue a master's degree in computer science at UND or a master's in software engineering at NDSU.
