Software engineering is central to the success of many of today’s businesses, and this vocational course shares a first year with a number of other relevant BSc degrees. It then offers the opportunity for specialist study in the second and third stages, during which you will learn the principles of the subject. A final year project will allow you to work with greater focus, leading to the possibility of future research. You will also gain management skills and knowledge of organisational contexts, and develop into a reflective practitioner.
The curriculum structure is composed of core subjects combined with strands that allow a deeper exploration of particular aspects of a broadly based subject. The core comprises fundamental subjects entwined around the software engineering lifecycle as a central supporting pillar. This thematic approach to software engineering enables students to orient their studies towards particular learning outcomes leading to the ability to progress towards specialisation whilst maintaining the flexibility that the core provides. On completion of the Honours degree students will be capable of making a positive contribution to a variety of software engineering, computing and related industries. The course aims: to develop personal skills so that students have confidence, the ability to express their creativity both individually and as part of a team and to promote a responsible attitude towards the use of the computing hardware and software.
