The course covers software development, various programming languages, technologies and applications including Java, C/C#, UNIX, UML, graphics, networks, concurrent systems, databases, artificial intelligence, web and mobile computing.

You will share a common first year with students on the Mobile and Web Computing MEng/BEng and Computer Science BSc courses, which means that you can transfer in Year 1 (Credit Level 4), and specialise in Year 3 (Credit Level 6).


This course studies the best ways to design, build, maintain and evaluate software systems. It makes use of many of the technical aspects of computer science, especially programming, and aims to develop the professional attitudes, interpersonal and technical skills you will need in the software engineering industry.

The course provides a solid foundation in software engineering theory and practice to develop professional software systems. As a BEng course its emphasis is on fundamental principles, design, acquisition of practical skills and evaluation of technologies. Having completed three years to be awarded a BEng qualification, students can choose (subject to progression criteria) to complete an integrated Masters programme with the award of an MEng degree after four years. A sandwich year is also available.
