Our Software Engineering course is designed to give you all the skills you need to work as a technical expert in this ever-evolving sector. Join us on live chat now to find out more, or register to meet us at an Open Day.
As well as providing you with a good overview of the IT industry as a whole, we have specialist computing suites on campus where you can hone your software development skills and upskill on the latest methods, techniques and tools utilised in this field.
What’s more, this course is accredited by the British Computing Society (BCS). To be awarded Chartered IT Professional status from BCS you will need to complete a year of further learning beyond graduation and meet other criteria, details of which can be found on the BCS website.
We understand that computing is a diverse subject and that it can be difficult to know what area you’d like to specialise in at this stage in your career. That’s why all of our courses within the computing framework share a common first year, giving you the time to really explore the subject before deciding on a specialism. There are courses that allow you to keep a relatively wide focus, as well as degrees that provide a greater level of specialism, giving you plenty of flexibility when it comes to which direction you want your career to take.
This course forms part of BU's framework of computing alongside the following other courses:
- BSc (Hons) Business Information Technology
- BSc (Hons) Computing
- BSc (Hons) Computer Networks
- BSc (Hons) Cyber Security Management
- BSc (Hons) Data Science & Analytics
- BSc (Hons) Forensic Computing & Security
- BSc (Hons) Information Technology Management
You only need to apply for one of the courses in the framework. If you change your mind and would prefer to study a different course within the framework, you will have the opportunity to change your final degree title during your study with us.
Applying for this course also means you are eligible to apply for a Royal Television Society Bursary. This bursary helps encourage Computer Sciences and Engineering undergraduates to consider the career opportunities that television and related media industires can offer you.
