With the IT sector expanding rapidly around the world, there has never been a better time to develop specialist software engineering skills. 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.
A degree (at least 2:1) in a computing subject or an engineering degree with a significant level of computing.
Applicants with equivalent professional qualifications, or a relevant Higher National Diploma (HND) will be considered, provided they can demonstrate significant, relevant work experience and the ability to benefit fully from the course. Such applicants will be considered on an individual basis by interview. Some optional modules may not be available to students without a first degree in computing.
International students need to meet our English language requirement at either IELTS at 6.5 or above, and a minimum of 5.5 for each of the 4 individual components (Reading, Writing, Speaking and Listening), TOEFL ibt at score at 90 or above, Pearson PTE Academic at score 58 or above, or an equivalent secure English language test. In some countries where teaching is in English, we may accept local qualifications.
Career and study progression
This course aims to help you towards a rewarding position in the software industry, such as software architect, solution architect, project manager or senior software developer.
You can go on to further study at the level of MPhil / PhD.
We actively encourage students with potential for research to make their interest known early on in their course.
