Software Engineering (with internship)

This course will give you an understanding of the latest software engineering technologies used to address today's challenges in software development. You will become familiar with a broad range of current scholarship work in software engineering, learning how to research and review published work. Your studies will also give you a practical understanding of the issues relating to the design, analysis and implementation of modern software systems, and you will have opportunities to meet speakers from the industry, including potential employers. In short, this course prepares you for a professional career or research in this important field. The Internship Course seeks to provide the same rigorous and challenging programme of professional practice as the MSc Software Engineering but has the added advantage of including a 6 months internship incorporated into the period of study. This makes it ideal for students seeking to add a practical dimension to their studies and understand the demands of workplace supervision and management. Internship opportunities exist throughout the computing industry within the UK.
