Through this training you'll have the opportunity to gain an insight into a variety of teams across the technology spectrum whilst developing your technical specialism as you progress through the apprenticeship.

Without software engineering, you wouldn't be reading this page. Software innovation has transformed the way we think about, and interact with, technology. In fact, all the forms of communication, interaction and access that we take for granted today are made possible by software in some shape or form. Which is why the demand for software engineers has never been greater.

From improving the efficiency of the apps we use in order to make them more sustainable, to developing scalable and secure app infrastructure, Software Engineers have skills that drive innovation. In essence, they are problem solvers with the ability to take an existing software system and creatively refine, enhance and transform it into something even better.

This degree programme is designed to equip you with the analytical, reasoning and practical skills required to design, develop and deploy large software systems. It blends the best knowledge and skills from both Software Engineering and Computer Science. Graduates could find themselves working on a wide variety of projects, from Artificial Intelligence to Augmented Reality and 3D Printing to Drones, we're using these technologies to help our clients work better and prepare for the future.

Developed through very close partnerships with PwC the degree apprenticeship is designed to combine the analytical, reasoning and practical skills learnt in a typical university degree with key industry attributes like collaboration, teamwork and workload management which they will need to succeed as professional software engineers. As a degree apprentice, you will be employed as an apprentice at PwC for the duration of your traditional University based study.

While on placement you'll get to meet our world-class clients and work alongside our highly skilled teams. During your time at university you'll get to experience the full time student lifestyle. But as the placements are paid you'll have some money to enjoy it too. You'll gain a degree, and hopefully impress us enough to secure a place on our graduate scheme.
