Course summary

Overview

With the IT sector expanding rapidly around the world, there has never been a better time to take a software engineering course. We will help you develop the knowledge and practical skills you need to further your career or research activities.

This course will introduce you to the latest industrial standard technologies and provide the opportunity to specialise in topics ranging from software architecture to implementation techniques, building on necessary skills to tackle modern software systems in an industrial context.

Furthermore, you will become familiar with a broad range of current scholarship work in software engineering and learn how to research and review published work.

With these new skills you will be prepared for a professional career in software systems and lead to rewarding work in the software industry such as software architect, solution architect, project manager, senior software developer etc.

Course detail

If you have a background in IT and want to specialise in software engineering, this course will hone your critical research and analysis skills and add to industry-specific knowledge.

It will help you build the skills you need to work with modern software systems in today’s industry and develop a comprehensive understanding of commercial software engineering.

Beyond the core topics, this software engineering degree will allow you to specialise in areas from software project management to implementation techniques.

This course is led by an academic team with extensive research and professional practice directly in software engineering. You will benefit from the industry experience and current research of supportive tutors, and enjoy access to computer labs, our modern library and a range of digital resources.

In the final stages of your course, you will use your enhanced research skills and knowledge to complete an original piece of work. This could be the design and implementation of a complex software application, a literature-focused study or a research-focused empirical study.
