Software Engineering is the practice of writing the software that makes the world "go round". This degree will help you to develop the skills needed to write good quality software that is reliable and does what the users need it to do. This is a fast moving exciting field of study with the challenges involved to engineer high quality, secure and reliable software systems in a wide range of different fields from medicine, to education, to space flight, to manufacturing and everything in between. Our degree will enable you to adopt a professional approach to the entire process of developing software, from the initial gathering of requirements, through to the design of the functionality and interfaces, to the implementation of the final product using industry best practices. You will have the opportunity to develop your technical and personal skills by working on a range of interesting and challenging assessments, many of which you will decide for yourself. The course is highly practical, with lots of opportunities to engage with people and organisations that work in software development. It will support you to become the best Software Engineer you can be. Software Engineering at CCCU is supported by a diverse, well qualified and experienced team of teaching and technical staff, in purpose built computing suites, housed in a new building. The majority of teaching staff have teaching qualifications and many also have real industrial and commercial expertise in the subjects they are teaching. After completion of your second year you will have the opportunity to undertake year in industry to allow you to develop your knowledge and skills in a business or industrial setting. This allows you to build up the practical skills desired by employers and to demonstrate your capabilities on your CV. This innovative course has been designed in collaboration with industry and you’ll have the opportunity to work and develop relationships with a range of employers. We offer a truly immersive learning opportunity where the applied side of the course provides the opportunity to solve problems provided by local industry. Working with your peers and other fields of engineering you will typically have the opportunity to apply theory to solving industry supplied work related/work based problems. This course will support you building your confidence enabling you to develop specialist skills and in depth knowledge, so that you can play a key role as a software engineer. We are one of only a handful of universities in the UK to offer the CDIO (Conceive, Design, Implement and Operate) international engineering education model developed by MIT that allows you to learn in a practical, hands-on way to tackle real life problems.
