BSc (Hons) Software Engineering (New Yearly Programme - FT) E320

1. Objectives Information and Communication Technology (ICT) sector being one of the most knowledge-intensive branches of the economy, there is demand for human resource in the software engineering discipline in both the public and private sectors. Software engineering is a field that deals with high-level designs and solutions that guide the development of specific software projects or products. The programme has been tailor-made to produce graduates who are proficient in developing software according to Industry standards, in terms of methodologies and technologies. The course provides students with both theoretical knowledge and practical skills in areas such as software development, integration & testing and software project management. Graduates will possess the engineering skills required to design and implement software systems. The scheme of study offers graduates essential technical and soft skills to seamlessly make the transition from University to the software development industry and adapt to a professional environment.

The programme is in line with international recommendations of computing curricula for Undergraduate Degree Programs in Software Engineering and designed in collaboration with software industry.
