Programme profile

By designing smart and efficient IT-solutions we can influence the future of peoples lives. People who, with the help of technology and management, create innovative products are sought after around the world.

Software Engineering is about methods for developing computer applications, asking the right questions to the customer, translating customer answers into design, and managing projects, organisations and employees in this work. This requires that you have good technical skills, the capability to analyse a problem, that you can estimate time and cost for a larger development project and that you can communicate and interact with customers and other partners in a big software development project.

A key element of the curriculum is the focus on project-based and problem-based learning. Each term students break out into groups to work on a project that develops or applies IT to a significant social or organisational problem. This approach allows you to work on large projects that provide you with the opportunity to create a realistic, team-oriented work environment in which you learn different roles such as project manager, software architect, quality manager and system developer.
