Course summary

This Software Engineering postgraduate degree will give you experience in the analysis, design and development of computing systems solutions relevant to a wide range of applications in industry and business. You will be able to devise multi-tasking software solutions using high-level languages to implement suitable architecture-software constraints for computer applications. You will develop project management skills that will allow you to effectively contribute to the creation and management of large computing projects and to appreciate the techniques employed in managing such projects. If you're looking to work in computing and technology industries, this is a great fast-track conversion course for graduates from disciplines unrelated to IT and computing. We have a rich mix of knowledge ranging from software development for different types of systems to hardware aspects such as networking for you to learn from. We engage fully in our subject area and this engagement feeds directly and indirectly into our teaching. Professor David Brown leads several projects, funded by the European Union, in games and assistive technology while Professor Paul Evans' innovative developments in security are supported by the USA Dept of Homeland Security. Other examples of our activity are: developing patents (for example, in voice signal processing) involvement in the GameCity Festival organising conferences on Interactive Technology and Games and on Intelligent Environments working with local companies on funded projects e.g. enhancing the capability of the press association to search their image database publishing novel findings in research publications on for example financial prediction, mobile communications, and detection of human behaviour patterns.
