About

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.
