Course summary

The EngD in Software Systems Engineering is a practical research programme for those with an interest in software engineering projects or who may already be working as a software developer, but recognises career progression may necessitate research level training. You will spend 75-80% of your time with your company, working on 4-6 flexible but research level projects. The remainder you will spend with us training in Advanced Software Engineering topics, while being guided by your academic supervisor building on your industrial work and solving it's associated research problems. An EngD gives you a solid industry application focus and offers a range of flexible pathways of differing duration to suit your individual needs.
