Program Overview

Our Software Engineering MSc/PG Dip/PG Cert has been developed in collaboration with sector-leading organisations such as Airbus and Deloitte UK, and is regularly reviewed, ensuring your learning is in line with industry needs. Academics from the Software Technology Research Laboratory, which forms part of the Cyber Technology Institute, an ‘Airbus Centre of Excellence in Cyber Security’, also regularly input onto the course, meaning you will also benefit from their expertise and research in the sector.

On this course, you will develop the core technical knowledge and skills needed to design, develop, test and maintain a diverse range of software applications that are fit-for-purpose for industry and business. You will learn on a variety of engaging modules, such as Cloud-based System Design, Internet of Things, Software Quality Assurance and Testing and Critical Systems and Modern Programme Techniques, which includes considering how large companies such as Twitter are making use of modern programming techniques in Scala and Python to save time and reduce runtime errors.

In your final block of teaching, you will have the opportunity to carry out a Postgraduate Project with the support of your academic supervisor. This self-managed, in-depth study will enable you to showcase your skills and knowledge and tailor them to a particular problem or research project of your own choosing.

By the time you graduate, you will have the skills and knowledge required to kick start your career in software engineering. Our graduates have gone on to work as software engineers, consultants and project managers for companies such as IBM, BT and Deloitte UK. You will also be well-positioned to take your studies further by continuing towards a PhD.
