Since starting the Digital Media Software Engineering (DMSE) program here at Ferris,
my life has changed so much. The professors are always available and ready to help
all of the students succeed. ~Anthony
I really like the DMSE program because the classes are informative and we learn from
people that are/were in the software business. Plus the fact that the program uses/or
talks about the latest developments in the industry including hands-on experience.
The DMSE program has given me an excellent window into the technologies and innovations
that will drive the future. Learning today's methodologies and practices with an open
mind about how they can be applied to upcoming developments is incredibly valuable.
There is definitely a good balance between instruction and self-discovery, and I very
much enjoy the idea of enhancing my learning through personal experiences and experiments.
The DMSE program is a valuable step in my career path. While we are taught the theory
behind software development, we are encouraged to apply this to projects of our choosing.
This allows me to create what I would like to, using theory acquired from lecture.
I work in the field and the instructor does a great job of relating real-world scenarios
to the topics being taught. I have been able to use the knowledge gained in class
to write a UI where I work. Each topic we cover in class comes to life in my job most
My internship was a wonderful opportunity to learn business practices and corporate
culture. Being able to take practices learned in class and apply them at Steelcase
reinforced my learning even further. I also learned many valuable skills on how to
present and market myself as an individual. All in all, I could not have asked for
a better opportunity. ~Kyle
The Digital Media and Software Engineering program is absolutely amazing. Ferris gave
me the tools and skills to early in the program so that I was able to get a job as
a Software Developer while still going to school. I was groomed for interviews, jobs,
and was able to hook into the Ferris Job Network. Would I recommend this program to
other students? I already do, and will continue to in the future. ~AD
