Course summary

TEF Silver

Cardiff Metropolitan University has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.

Find out more about the TEF.

​​The Software Engineering degree course is designed to develop knowledge and expertise in the design, development and delivery of software for modern environments and platforms by studying a broad range of software development tools, technologies and methodologies. It will develop a culture and appreciation of software carpentry and ‘codemanship’: creating useful and usable software artefacts.

The course covers similar fundamentals to that of Computer Science but with an emphasis in later years on the design and development of software for particular applications, as well as examining architectural paradigms such as parallel and distributed computing.

Students have the option of broadening their studies to include topics such as the teaching of computing, computer graphics, and the law pertaining to digital security and be prepared for a varied career in applied software engineering.​ As such students can graduate with a named award in:

  • BSc (Hons) Software Engineering (Web Technology)

  • BSc (Hons) Software Engineering (Augmented & Virtual Reality)

  • BSc (Hons) Software Engineering (Network Security)

  • BSc (Hons) Software Engineering (Data Security)
