BSc (Hons) Computer Science (Software Engineering)

Software Engineering involves the use of principles from the field of engineering in the development of computer software. The objective being to produce robust, quality systems that are fit for purpose, whilst being easy to maintain and adapt as the user requirements change. Our course teaches the tools, techniques and methodologies that embrace these engineering principles.

The course aims to produce software developers who can seamlessly make the transition from University to the International Computer Industry. We will provide you with a thorough grounding in the core principles of computer science and integrating these with computer languages, tools, techniques and methodologies used by computer professionals worldwide. Additionally, we will prepare you with the key skills needed to keep abreast of future developments in the exciting career to which this course leads.

You will also engage in studies focused on developing your academic and employability skills and you will be offered the opportunity to undertake a placement year where you gain invaluable experience in the workplace before returning to complete your final year. Many students have found this to be a real asset when it comes to finding a job after graduation.
