The aim of the Software Engineering programme is to enable students to develop a systematic understanding of the software development process and the associated professional skills necessary in software engineering practice.
Students will develop expertise to:
* conduct requirements analysis and specification * create and evaluate software architecture and design solutions * develop dependable software units * verify software systems and make informed decisions in the management of software projects
which are all key to a professional software engineering career.
Graduates will be equipped with the essential analytical skills and knowledge for development and maintenance of large-scale software systems, and with the ability to apply this knowledge to real-world applications.
Deep knowledge of object-oriented analysis and design, making use of UML-based techniques and the intellectual skills to create well-designed solutions will be developed.
Students will develop an understanding of the management issues involved in creating software systems, and how they can be addressed from the viewpoint of the organisation, the software developers and the end-users.
Practical experience of a substantial software development project from the initial analysis of a problem, through design and planning, implementation, testing, evaluation and documentation will be provided.
Qualifications from outside the UK will also be considered. International students whose native language is not English will also need to demonstrate English Language ability (e.g. IELTS 6.5, TOEFL score of 600 or equivalent).
BSc Honours in Computer Science or an alternative degree with substantial computing content with at least grade 2.2 (or equivalent).
UK/EU students: £4,500 (2011), International students: £12,950 (2011)
Recipient: Aston University
