Software Engineering

Gain the knowledge and practical skills required to develop fit-for-purpose software systems using the latest engineering methods. Develop your knowledge of the major programming languages (C/C++, Java, JavaScript, C#), database design and manipulation, and various modern frameworks. Balance theory and practice to support the specification, design, implementation and evaluation of software-based systems in businesses and other organisations. This course is ideal if you want to become a software developer who understands and can apply fundamental software engineering principles to construct complex software systems. The first two years of course content matches the BEng Software Engineering. During this time it is possible to transfer to or from the BEng. You develop the fundamental skills of software development across different web-based and database application areas. **Applied learning** **Work placements** You will have the opportunity to arrange a year-long work placement in between your second and third years. This gives you a real-world experience to prepare you for your future career. We can help you to gain a placement and support you through the application process. Previous students have worked at organisations including Intel, IBM, 3Squared, SN Systems and CSC Servelec. **Live projects** You apply your programming skills and knowledge to solve real-world problems. This includes a second year project where you work as a team with a commercial client to deliver a software prototype to them. **Field trips** You may be able to study abroad as part of the Erasmus programme.
