Course summary

This is a degree apprenticeship, which will combine traditional university study with work-based learning, and lead to an award of a BEng in Software Engineering with Digital Technology Partnership.Software is a fundamental part of today’s digital society, controlling everything from the results that are displayed when you use a search engine, through to how we interact with others on social media or access on-demand content on mobile devices. In the future, virtually all of our human processes will be affected by the design and development of software. It is the role of software engineers to develop and maintain software systems in a manner that is efficient, reliable and affordable. Software engineers must also understand the needs of those who will use the software, and be able to create products that are safe and intuitive.Developed through a close partnership with a leading technology employer; this degree apprenticeship is designed to equip our graduates with the analytical, reasoning and practical skills they will need to succeed as a professional software engineer.The structure of a degree apprenticeship is such that throughout the four years of the programme you will be mixing study at Queen’s along with working for an employer, Pricewaterhouse Coopers (PwC). In the first two years of the course you will be at the university during the two semesters of the academic year and working with PwC when not studying. In the third and fourth years you will spend one semester each year at Queen’s and work at PwC the rest of the time. There will be a number of workshops and contact sessions during every year to keep you in touch with both Queen’s and PwC and to help you progress both professionally and academically.Throughout the programme you will be an employee of PwC and they will pay you a salary that covers the time spent working directly with them and the time spent studying at Queen’s. In addition, your fees will also be paid in full. On successful completion you will be awarded a BEng degree and progress in your career with PwC, subject to meeting their performance criteria.
