This course has been designed to provide you with a deeper, specialist knowledge of software engineering than the BSc(Hons) version of the course. You’ll study for an extra year with the aim of gaining an MEng qualification. Your extra year of study gives you opportunities for project work and developing pieces of working software. Software engineering is all about finding practical solutions to real problems. To succeed, employers will want you to be able to produce software that is robust, reliable and attractive to use – all at a reasonable cost and to a certain timeframe. This integrated Master’s course is designed to prepare you for a lasting and rewarding career in software development. The opportunities open to you as a software engineer are forever changing, as industries develop and introduce new innovation. We want to give you the knowledge and skills to succeed in this exciting and fast paced environment. You’ll be able to explore the latest techniques that software developers use. During your studies you’ll be able to use the high-standard and contemporary computing facilities we have on campus, including a range of machines running a variety of operating systems and software. To put the skills you’ve learnt into practice, after your second year you’ll be given the chance to take an optional placement. You could gain some crucial real-world experience that could give you the edge when it comes to finding a rewarding career. The final year of your MEng course gives you the chance to get involved in project work, and you’ll also study more advanced software development techniques and management topics. The course is accredited by the British Computer Society (BCS), the chartered institute for the IT industry.
