Software engineering is essential to the smooth running of modern life. Tesco tills, driverless cars and passenger planes all require safe, reliable, robust software to make them work.
This programme specialises in the formal techniques you’ll need to develop software that controls the world around us. You'll gain a strong good working knowledge of computer science and software engineering and the theories that underpin the disciplines.
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 3D games, stock control management systems and even a Jedi lightsaber training simulator.
Plus you’ll get the chance to test your skills out in the real world on an optional year-long industry placement, just like previous students have for companies like BT, IBM, Microsoft and Virgin Media.
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.
