Re: [ljc] BSc or MSc

I think its a good idea on both counts. Being a developer is quite hard intellectually, good to proove you are highly capable. I did a 'conversion' msc having done a non-computing degree. Also the best developers I've worked with keep software engineering principles in mind eg encapsulation and abstraction

Hey guys,

We recently had a conversation about the relevance of an MBA to a Software Engineer's career. How about an MSc?

I have had this question come directly to me:

"I am a graduate in Computer Science Engineering. I want to study the MSc course in Software Engineering. I would like to know the advantages of a Masters degree over a Bachelors degree and is Software Engineering a good field to specialise in?"

I'm keen to get your thoughts in this space. How do you personally view it?

Thanks,
Barry
