This programme has been developed with support from industry partners including Accenture to create highly skilled software engineers who are effective in the workplace. Software systems are the fundamentals of all modern business. Such systems are often complex and long lived and must be robust and adaptable. This degree programme will equip you with the skills needed to follow a career specifying and developing these systems and other computer-based solutions. This course enables you to create high-quality software applications for complex organisational environments, with an emphasis on good engineering practice that allows for ease of maintenance and the use of existing components. You will not only gain knowledge and practical experience of the latest technologies, but also a grounding in the underlying principles of this specialism. It is this combination of skills that enable our graduates to keep pace within this fast moving area and secure financially rewarding careers in the local economy and beyond. If you currently hold a relevant computing Foundation Degree, you may be able to progress onto the third year of this programme. Throughout the course you will be encouraged to undertake work placements and manage live briefs from industry, giving you valuable work experience to help you secure employment upon graduation. Throughout the course you will create a portfolio of software projects that you can showcase to potential employers. With a combination of theoretical skills and practical experience, you will be sought after by employers from a wide range of businesses and industries. Telecommunications, e-commerce, mobile technologies, aeronautics and defence are just some of the areas that can offer employment to graduate software engineers or developers, application engineers or software architects. On completion of your course you may also wish to progress onto an appropriate Masters Degree.
