We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Masters degrees in Software Engineering offer advanced training in the techniques and principals to design, construct and test the maintenance of computer programs and detect any operational problems.
Taught MSc courses are typical for this field, though research-oriented MRes and MPhil programmes may also be available at some institutions. Entry requirements normally include an appropriate undergraduate degree such as Computer Science.
You will develop the ability to analyse software problems, create and evaluate software designs and develop and appropriately test software solutions.
Software development techniques include user-centred design and service-oriented architectures. Programming and cryptography (coding) techniques such as JAVA script, UML modelling language and XML-enabled interoperability (information exchange) are also explored.
Training is also provided in managing data structures within a range of computing systems such as mobile technologies, cloud computing, and big data. Particularly, you will analyse privacy & security methods, as well as evolutionary computation.
Traditional careers include positions in software houses, and consultancy for a range of organisations. These could include banks, large manufacturers, retailers, public services, defence, aerospace and telecommunications companies.
