Course Structure

Each module will be delivered as a series of intensive 1-day lectures. Each module also has associated practical work which can be completed off-site. This flexible delivery structure is designed to allow both full-time and part-time students to complete each module. Postgraduate Diploma in Science (Software Engineering) students have fewer modules and less-restrictive passing thresholds than students taking the MSc in Computer Science (Software Engineering) MHG50. The department operates a transfer policy between MHG56 and MGH50, for students that achieve appropriately high results on each of the modules. This is a Level 9 qualification.

Career Options

Students are qualified for many jobs in the software industry where they will be able to apply the principles of good scientific software engineering practice. The course focuses on topics such as requirements engineering, system design, testing strategies and software development so that successful participants will have hands on experience and will be able to lead major software engineering projects.
