Bachelor of Software Engineering (Hons)

About the Course

The software engineering degree is practically-oriented, and focuses on the design and implementation of large software systems – particularly those with interactive or multimedia components. It is built around four themes: the design and implementation of software systems; the use and development of networked and distributed systems; user interface principles; and evaluation and testing.

You will graduate with: general knowledge and understanding of computer and software systems; specialised knowledge of the design, implementation, user interfaces, and evaluation of software systems; experience in using a variety of problems encountered in the area of software engineering; and an understanding of the professional, legal and ethical aspects of the discipline.
Our BSc Software Engineering degree has common modules with our computer science degree, but is tailored to focus more on the design and implementation of large software systems. If you enjoy building things, and want to learn to construct software systems – and that includes considering people as well as machines – then this course would be a good option.

Career Opportunities

While many computer science graduates do become programmers, others are employed in a wide variety of jobs. These include computer analysts, IT consultants and planners, network/systems designers and engineers, researchers, software designers and engineers, web designers, web developers and producers as well as roles across advertising and marketing, business and financial analysis, accountancy and investment/merchant banking and legal and quality assurance professions. Some of our graduates have gone on to work for traditional computer companies such as Adobe, Google, Hewlett-Packard, IBM and Microsoft. Others have found jobs with employers such as Accenture, Experian, and Ocado.
