Applied Master (MSc) in Software Engineering

Emirates Aviation University and Coventry University UK are offering you the chance to study towards a part-time Applied Master (MSc) in Software Engineering degree. The programme aims to further develop students' knowledge of and expertise in specialist software engineering subjects associated with the main application areas of software development. Particular prominence is given to Cloud Computing and Distributed Technologies, Business Intelligence and Big Data, Advanced Software Design and Development (using Java), Network Security, Data Mining and Warehousing, IS/IT Procurement and IT Project Management (with Prince 2). The programme is taught on a part-time basis, in five-day blocks per module, held every two months. Modules are delivered by a specialist team of academics drawn from EAU’s pool of international visiting faculties flying from across the globe.

Why enrol in this programme?

This programme covers advanced software engineering modelling and architecting concepts. It educates students in the theory, practice, tools and applications necessary for the design, management and deployment of contemporary software systems.

The programme is an excellent route to a high-performing career in the software industry or an ideal foundation for PhD study. Student projects offer the chance to work on the engineering lifecycle for a significant software system where students benefit from applying their creativity, judgement and critical thinking.


The Applied Master (MSc) in Software Engineering is a dual award programme conferred by Emirates Aviation University and Coventry University, UK. The EAU award is subject to recognition by the National Qualifications Authority (NQA) in the UAE.

Career prospects

As a Master level software engineer, you will be prepared to work in just about any industry, from finance to aerospace. Software engineers often decide to return for Master studies after a few years of experience. A Master in software Engineering gives students experience using the software development life cycle to solve complex real-world problems. Software engineers that have both a Master and experience can vie for top positions at prestigious companies.
