Course summary

Today’s society needs software that communicates effectively with a number of devices, and so there is a need for qualified and skilled professionals who can design, develop and analyse software to improve our current provision. Our MSc in Software Engineering will equip you with this expertise. While this pathway is mostly technical in focus, you will also learn about the business context and develop interpersonal skills that are vital to problem solving in business. You will study six modules and complete a dissertation. Some of the optional modules are only offered according to staff availability and student numbers.

Assessment method

You will be assessed through coursework:

  • Oral presentations
  • Group work
  • Practical reports
  • Critical reviews
  • Substantial independent research dissertation.


Entry requirements

Applicants will normally hold a recognised first or second class honours degree from a UK university or international equivalent in a relevant subject. We expect that you will have a working knowledge of computers and networks and it is essential that you have practical hands-on experience of at least one programming language. Those who do not have English as their first language will need to demonstrate that they meet the minimum English language requirement of IELTS 6.5 (or equivalent). If you do not meet our standard entry requirements, it is possible to undertake a single module and, upon successful completion of this module, progress to the full MSc qualification, contact us at [email protected] to discuss this option.
