This programme meets the complex challenges facing the software developers of the future. This is achieved through education and training in advanced concepts within software technology, covering the entire sequence of development.



The Master´s programme in Software Engineering will provide you with the skills and knowledge required to engineer software systems from the initial planning and scoping of projects through to the process of development, testing, and delivery of the software system itself. The courses cover both engineering and working methodologies and you will study subjects such as project planning, software quality, specification management and research methodology.
The programme was developed to meet the needs of students, industry and academia. It has a strong focus on preparing you for employment in both business and research organisations, and elective courses allow students to create their own skills profiles.
The programme consists of 120 credits and leads to a two-year Masterís degree.
