MSc Software Engineering

University of Greenwich

MSc in Software Engineering

This programme involves advanced software engineering modelling and architecting concepts and practice for designing and building modern enterprise software systems. It includes an understanding of system administration and security, distributed programming, contemporary software technologies and a critical understanding of enterprise architectures, frameworks and strategies for building internet-enabled enterprise systems.

The main tasks facing industry at the moment involve the design and development of new internet-enabled systems, the integration of legacy systems into intranets and extranets, and advanced internet publishing. There is a recognised need for the efficient management of the software engineering process using modern approaches to software development management and system administration.

Many important tasks facing industry, finance and commerce at the moment involve the development of new distributed and internet enabled systems, the integration of legacy systems into intranets or extranets, and internet publishing. There is a pressing need for people with knowledge and skills in designing, building and maintaining such systems. These skills should be accompanied by an appreciation of the business context and market forces behind the new technologies.

There is also a pressing need for people with skills in designing, building and maintaining modern enterprise systems, project management and management of the software engineering process. These skills should be accompanied by an appreciation of the business context and market forces behind the new technologies.

This programme educates students in the theory, practice, tools and applications necessary for the design, management and deployment of enterprise computing systems. Students can choose options specialising in network technologies, data architectures and database technologies, web services and clouds, or user centred and interactive systems.
