Software Engineering (MSc)

Our BCS accredited MSc in Software Engineering is designed to produce successful software engineers who will have an understanding of software engineering principles (and their application), design skills, knowledge of good management practice, computing science and mathematical formalism. The course aims to equip you to begin a career, or to undertake further study in this important and exciting area.

The most complex engineering artifacts in existence are now software systems, and the effects of such systems are felt by almost everyone. It is vitally important that software should be of high quality; it should be built on schedule and without error and it should be safe. Software Engineering combines scientific and engineering principles with sound practice to ensure the production of high-quality, reliable software that does what it is designed to do.
