The growth and influence of software in business and our daily lives have been phenomenal. Software engineering deals with design and development of high quality software systems and hence it is an increasingly important area in computer science. In this programme you will gain extensive knowledge and practical skills in software engineering.

About

In this programme you will acquire profound knowledge and excellent expertise in engineering software-intensive systems, which imply the ability to cope with complexity in designing, verifying and implementing such systems globally. You will obtain knowledge of principles for the analysis, design and implementation of large and complex software systems with special emphasis on predictability and performance. The modern trends that will dominate future software development including component-based software engineering, service-oriented architectures, interoperability and global system development will be taught. You will be provided with the know-how necessary for working successfully in a global context, with an opportunity to specialize in specific areas of software engineering, such as dependability or component- and model-based development.
