Software engineering is not simply a matter of technical expertise in requirements, specification, design, implementation and maintenance. The process and practice of software engineering requires leadership and management. Our specialist pathway will enable you to review standard practices in project management, and use these to explore how people and cultures relate to successful project management and leadership. Your final year will culminate with the opportunity to deep dive into research focused modules relating to the specialist area of Software Engineering. You will review standard practices in project management, and learn how to use them to explore how people and cultures relate to successful project management and leadership. You will also be exposed to state-of-the-art industrial software engineering management practices inspired by organisations such as Google.
