Software Engineering BSc (Hons)

Are you interested in becoming a computer programmer, web developer or software engineer?  This course will prepare you for working in the fast-moving software industry.

As we rely more on technology as a part of everyday life, there is an increasing demand for people with the skills to update, maintain and improve the software we depend on.

On this Chartered Institute for IT (BCS) accredited course, you will use your creativity and problem solving skills to learn how to apply software development principles to develop innovative solutions to real world problems.

In addition to core computing skills, you will gain experience of using a variety of programming languages and frameworks to develop technical systems. You will also explore how to design software systems so they can be easily maintained and evaluated to ensure they match user and organisational requirements. 

This is one of eight undergraduate computing courses we offer at BU. As we understand that it can be difficult to know what area you’d like to specialise in, all of these courses share a common first year, giving you the time to really explore the subject before deciding on a specialism. You only need to apply for one of the courses and you will have the opportunity to change your final degree title during your study with us.
