Software Engineering for Business (with Foundation Year)

Computers are now an essential part of our lives. We use them at work, to organise our social lives and to play games. They are fundamental to many systems keeping society running smoothly such as hospitals, public transport, governments and banks. Software engineering involves building programs so these computers effectively fulfil their purpose. With more technology jobs available in the UK than qualified computing graduates, job prospects for software engineers have never been better. Developed by Tech Industry Gold and top graduate employers, this course is designed to give you the technical and business skills you will need when you graduate. You will study how software is built from start to finish, covering all the latest technologies including cloud computing, big data and cyber security. You will learn how businesses manage large projects and develop the professional skills to plan, design and deliver new software on time and within budget. You will also gain the skills to collaborate, negotiate and communicate effectively with colleagues and customers; lead teams and projects; and understand how companies operate profitably. During the first year of this course, you will study in City of Bristol College's advanced IT and computing laboratories. You will be able to access UWE Bristol's Frenchay campus and all the facilities and accommodation available to our students. From the second year of your course onwards, you'll be based at UWE Bristol's Frenchay campus.
