This BSc in Computer Science, specialising in software engineering, will provide you with a good understanding of computer science and the important elements of a computer system. You will learn how to build different types of software – from web-based systems to mobile solutions – and in the final year you’ll take compulsory modules in advanced computer science and choose options from a range of computing topics. By specialising in software engineering, you’ll focus on how to build high quality systems which will be easier to maintain and develop in the long term as the requirements of the system change, and the available technologies evolve. The techniques involved include testing, service-oriented architectures, and refactoring.
All our degrees emphasise acquiring knowledge and skills to develop your new understanding creatively and professionally. Although this is an academic degree, the course balances theory with ‘real world’ practice in information and computer management.
The aim of all undergraduate programmes offered by Department of Computer Science is primarily to equip our graduates with appropriate knowledge and skills required for their mainly commercial careers, making them highly employable.
Computer Science (Software Engineering) programme graduates will be able to:
• Display an in-depth knowledge of the management, organisation and execution of large-scale software design and development activities including reuse and integration. Typically such activities would address a range of business needs (multiple projects), or cross organisational boundaries, or support major enterprises such as banks or the NHS or be safety or mission critical.
Varies depending on country.
