About Course

Software engineering is central to the success of most modern businesses. This broad-based course covers the entire software engineering cycle, giving you the vocational skills you need to take on specialist roles, from developer or programmer to IT technical support.
Study the design, development and deployment of large-scale software within industrial and commercial settings, building your understanding of the lifecycle of systems and how they fit into management and organizational contexts.
In your first year, you gain a solid foundation in databases and computer networks, software engineering, computational thinking, programming and data structures. Moving forward, you then have the opportunity for specialist study in areas such as desktop applications development, mobile application development, web technologies and software for enterprise. Your final-year project will allow you to work with greater focus, opening up the possibility of conducting further research in the future.

Why B.Sc Software Engineering?
  • It is broad based but has the depth to give you the vocational skills required for a career in software engineering
  • Explore the theory of software engineering then apply it to real-life situations
  • Challenge conventional thinking as you develop your own solutions to many issues that face software engineering
  • Benefit from the teaching experience of an academic team with strong research backgrounds, actively engaged in supporting local businesses and organizations
  • The course shares a first year with other associated BSc degrees, giving you the chance to exchange ideas and knowledge with students from other disciplines
  • Develop into a reflective practitioner with the skills to manage projects in an organizational setting
  • Take the course over four years and include a fee-free year in industry (see below), building your experience and making contacts for the future
  • If you need a step-up into higher education, start with a Foundation Year (see below) which guarantees you place on the degree course
Distinctive Features
  • Broadly based yet enough depth (programming skills, testing skills etc.) so as to give you credible vocational skills in Software Engineering.
  • Coverage of the entire Software Engineering life cycle and comprehensive skills in applied programming and in applied Software Engineering topics.
  • Taught by staff with both a strong academic research background who’re also actively engaged in knowledge transfer (e.g. to local SME’s), and who are at the forefront of their field.
  • Emphasis on the life cycle but also in-depth skills such as programming and analysis.
