 Software Engineering

about the school

PhD student Sazzad Md Hussain working on Siento - Affective Computing Project 

Software engineering involves all aspects of software production from the strategy and design to coding, quality and management of large-scale, complex software systems.

With the growth in cloud computing and the increasing demand for sophisticated business solutions which access massive databases across wide networks, the need for highly-skilled software engineers is growing rapidly.

We offer both undergraduate and postgraduate programs in this field, including exciting opportunities in research. Our degree programs include foundation studies in mathematics, computer science and computer system principles, on which further studies in software design, development, security and management are built, including programming languages, databases, operating systems and enterprise and internet scale systems
