Course summary

Our Software Engineering degree equips you with the skills needed to apply practical computer science concepts in the real world of industry and commerce. Starting with object oriented coding and then building strong software development and software project management skills on that foundation, this degree is perfect if you who want to use your skills to develop software for industry and business. Additional modules cover computer systems, networking, human computer interaction, databases and web development - preparing you for a wide range of future careers. Our final year contains a range of exciting optional modules taught by subject specialist lecturers in areas such as e-commerce, eHealth, signal and data analysis, neural computation, semantic web and computational intelligence. These specialists comprise internationally-renowned researchers, as well as authors of textbooks used around the world. Over half of the students in our school choose to embark upon a Year in Industry after the second year. If you choose this, it would give you valuable work experience, a salary, and a good chance of a job offer at the end of it. Another option is Kent IT Consultancy (KITC), which would train you to become an IT Consultant, through providing real computing support consultancy services to local businesses; all while earning credit for your degree.
