The Advanced Software Engineering master programme from University College Dublin is specifically geared at experienced industrial software engineers and aims to provide them with the foundational skills necessary to apply these new developments in their own work.
In each year the student takes three ASE specialised modules. Each ASE specialised module runs as a full-time, intensive unit over five consecutive days (9am-6pm, Mon-Fri) in order to facilitate the participation of industry-based software engineers. The dissertation period commences in May of the second year and the dissertation should be submitted by the following December.
Each specialised module typically comprises 24 hours lectures, 16 hours of hands-on laboratory work, as well as assignment/essay work to be undertaken in the student's own time.
Students entering this programme are expected to have at least a 2.1 honours bachelor‘s degree in Computer Science (or a cognate discipline), and have a subsequent two or more years of industrial experience in software development. Prerequisite skills include a high degree of proficiency in object-oriented programming, a working knowledge of object-oriented design using e.g. UML, and experience in software development as part of a team. Each application will however be assessed on a case-by-case basis, and exceptions to these rules may be made.
Please note that this programme is not suitable for new graduates with little or no industrial experience.
At least 2 year(s) of work experience are required.
