Software is rapidly becoming the main driving force for innovation and development in a wide range of fields, including the automotive, telecom, and defence industries. Studying on this programme will give you a unique combination of advanced technical knowledge and management skills, preparing you for a dynamic and hugely exciting career in a fast-moving field.
The search for new hardware and software solutions is increasingly turning to dynamic technologies, rather than static ones — solutions which can grow and develop during their life cycle. Consequently, software is becoming larger and more complex than ever. As these softwares gradually become more and more relied upon to carry out vital functions, the pressures and demands for accuracy, reliability, and high-quality performance in turbulent and fast-changing environments are becoming enormous.
This programme combines a number of perspectives on software engineering, all of which are targeted at the goal of producing engineers skilled in designing the highest quality software, at low development and maintenance costs. The programme can also serve as a platform for future researchers, who will graduate with the ability to perform advanced technological and methodological experiments in software engineering.
The programme offers a mixture of conventional lectures, seminars, and project work, as well as real industrial collaborations with industry representatives from major international companies such as Ericsson, Volvo AB, Volvo IT, Volvo Cars, Saab and Astra Zeneca. You will be prepared for a career in which you become a true team-player, with a holistic perspective in software engineering that is in real demand in the industry. You will be equally equipped to handle organisational as well as technical challenges.
Projects, group work, and student presentations are also important parts of the programme. Three main competences in software engineering are addressed — advanced technical knowledge and skills, advanced knowledge of methods and processes, and advanced knowledge of industrial activities and practices.
The combination of these three areas of knowledge is greatly valued and in real demand in the software industry. You will be excellently placed to support, innovate, and improve practices through new methods and tools, beginning a fascinating and challenging career in the area.
