Software Engineering BSc (Hons)

Study a Software Engineering degree with us and you'll build the essential skills you need to work with software systems - opening the door to a range of career opportunities. You'll cover all aspects of the software engineering process, with a focus on the methodical approach to robust, error-free software design and development.

In your first year, you'll start with the core principles of computer architecture, databases, web design and programming. You'll then begin to specialise, with areas of study like software design and development processes, full-stack web development and advanced programming.

As you progress you'll develop knowledge of cloud computing, full-stack web development, software testing, as well as advanced development skills in a range of programming languages. You'll also tackle team-based projects and a large-scale software project in your final year. This will help you to build vital project management skills, as well as giving you a sound understanding of the role of software development tools within the software life cycle.
