Within software technology you study theories, methods and tools for efficient development of complex and high-quality software.
The Software Technology programme from Linnaeus University emphasises both theoretical and practical aspects of software development. It prepares you for a career as professional in software engineering, specifically as a specialist in efficient development of complex software systems, but you will also have the opportunity to pursue an academic career.
During the first year of the programme (shared with the one-year master programme), you will get a solid foundation in software technology through a number of general courses in computer science at advanced level. This is supplemented by studies in scientific methods and in agile software development.
After this programme, you will probably work as a software developer at a consultancy firm or at the IT department of a big enterprise. From that you can move on to work as a project coordinator, a software technology expert, or possibly as a manager. You will also have the opportunity to pursue an academic career, starting with a PhD education.
