About the course

Software engineering is central to the success of most modern businesses. This broad-based course covers the entire software engineering cycle, giving you the vocational skills you need to take on specialist roles, from developer or programmer to IT technical support.

Study the design, development and deployment of large-scale software within industrial and commercial settings, building your understanding of the lifecycle of systems and how they fit into management and organisational contexts.

In your first year, you gain a solid foundation in databases and computer networks; software engineering; computational thinking; programming; and data structures. Moving forward, you then have the opportunity for specialist study in areas such as desktop applications development; mobile application development; web technologies; and software for enterprise.
