Hi there guys,
I am planing to do a MSc course in computing (Sofware engineering related) in the United States. I am not sure which university offers the best course. Could you guys help me out?
I have 2 years working experince Java programming (servlet, applet, jsp, ejbs... etc). Can I get a part time job while doing the Msc course. I don't want to lose touch with the software industries while doing the Msc course.
Any help or advice is very much favoured. Thanks guys. By the way, I really like this site and so does my colleagues.

If you want to continue to work with Java while you are in school, then the
interdisciplinary Master of Science in Engineering (MSE) program at San Jose State
may be an interesting option. Check out the concentration in client/server computing.

Most schools only offer degress in CS. Even the ones that have software engineering degrees are usually given by the CS dept and vary very slighly from a CS degree.

C++! Java! C++! Java! Perl! C++! Java... oh wait, wrong religious war. What is "best?" There is no one best school. What makes one school better then another? Some people like the US News and World Report rankings, but frankly I think their criteria are fairly arbitrary and don't put much stock in it. It really depends on your needs and constraints and what different programs offer, for your personally.

I've run across enough MS Software Engineering that seem more than a little different than a CS degree that I suspect these are more common than Mark suggests. For example, in my area, there is Penn State at Great Valley, and Drexel Univesity.

I would love to see a listing of the cirriculums for these programs, so I can see how they differ.

There are many sites by the way,searching your specialization at each and every university will be tedious .Few years back(when internet was not there) we used to refer Peterson's guide.They might have web site also, search in google
