Overview

COURSE SUMMARY

The skills and knowledge you acquire on this course will be
invaluable for finding work in the computer industry – graduates of
this course have progressed to careers as a computer programmer or
software engineer (or trainee) in project management, safety critical
systems, software development, object orientation (OO) systems, design
and analysis. Other graduates have embarked on further research or
postgraduate study.

During the course you will:

  • Explore a broad-based curriculum, yet with enough depth to acquire
    credible vocational skills
  • Cover a variety of computer science areas, typically delivered by
    an expert in the relevant field
  • Cover the entire systems lifecycle
  • Take advantage of close links with local companies
  • Use state-of-the-art software development environments
  • Benefit from the Universitys research activity in the area of
    Computer Science
  • Be taught by staff with relevant experience in industry and
    commerce

Areas of study you may cover on this course include:

  • Software engineering management
  • System methodologies: Unified Modelling Language (UML), OO
  • Risk management and quality issues
  • Develop skills using a variety of tools (such as as Microsoft’s
    .NET framework-building application)
  • Testing

Career opportunities

CAREER MANAGEMENT SKILLS

This forms a consistent thread progressing through each year with
opportunities of engaging with industrial and business projects (at
Levels 2 and 3). Students are also encouraged to engage with the
Careers Development Unit (Job Shop) in order to assess the skills that
they possess against positions within the current market. Any skills
deficiencies can then be identified and students can begin to address
these in order to progress to their chosen career.

CAREER/FURTHER STUDY OPPORTUNITIES

Career paths:

It is possible to identify several different roles that graduates of
the joint degree pathway are expected to fulfil – competent software
engineering technician, trainee computer programmer / software
developer – and these vocational outcomes have formed the basis of
this strategically planned curriculum. Initially, students are likely
to gain jobs as a skilled practitioner with the prospect for later
progression leading to posts of responsibility supervising working
within a team based development and support settings within
significantly large, as well small scale, industrial and commercial
settings. The aim of the pathway is primarily seen to equip graduates
to develop the intellectual and pragmatic skills needed to develop
quality software artefacts that not only function and meet client
requirements, but also fit within the pragmatic constraints. The role
of external and internal standards is also emphasised as being vital.
Equally, such topics will equip the graduate to proceed to a higher
degree and or participate effectively within a research or academic
setting. An important feature of the joint pathway is that the entire
software production lifecycle is covered.

Further study:

MSc in a Software Engineering related topic; MPhil / PhD.
