Bsc. Software Engineering

Software systems are an integral part of modern society. Embedded in all aspects of daily life, including commerce, industry, healthcare, and communication, the pace of change and innovation in this field is rapid. Organizations of all sizes need talented people who can create software systems that are usable, robust, and maintainable

  • build practical skills, subject knowledge, and real-world understanding to become a professional software engineer
  • learn theoretical knowledge needed to adapt your skills as programming, languages, and techniques evolve
  • develop methodical approaches to the analysis, design, development, testing, and maintenance of object-oriented systems using the Java language
  • gain an in-depth understanding of the techniques and technologies associated with the creation of usable, secure, and maintainable interactive web applications
  • cultivate independent technical judgment in the use of techniques and tools associated with web technologies
  • develop the ability to think conceptually and translate concepts into reality through the use of technology
