Software engineering is essential to the smooth running of modern life. The apps and digital tools we use everyday, driverless cars and passenger planes all require safe, usable, reliable, robust software to make them work.
All our Computer Science undergraduate courses offer a guaranteed, paid year in industry, between the second and third year, as a recognised part of your degree, giving you the chance to test your skills out in the real world.
This programme specialises in formal and user-centred techniques that you’ll need to design, develop and deploy software that delivers value to users and controls the world around us. You'll gain a strong working knowledge of computer science and the theories that underpin the discipline.
You'll develop the skills to write code, create and manage software projects using the latest agile development methods, and you’ll learn about test-driven development and DevOps.
There's also the opportunity to specialise in the areas that interest you most – ending with a major individual software project. Previous topics have included, a run planner and diary, a wind farm simulation, modelling a self driving car and an app to find and join in with live, location-based events.
This degree is accredited to the maximum level available by the British Computer Society. The skills, experience and technical expertise you’ll gain at Hull will put you in high demand when it’s time to enter the job market in this fast-moving industry.
