The MSc Advanced Software Engineering provides an education that covers in-depth specific skills and the best practice currently available in software
development where there is presently a significant skill shortage, whilst at the same time instilling important research-based skills that will equip students for independent lifelong learning in fast-changing and technically challenging environment
“Real world problems need real world tech solutions”
The course is designed to enhance your knowledge in a specific area of your choice which is compliant with the emergent trends and technologies in Computer Science and Software Engineering. The course provides the student with ample opportunity to practice and enhance skills in software development along with academic study. The course also provides the necessary theoretical knowledge required to gain sufficient grounding in the topic areas to be able to pursue further self-study and /or academic research. It also provides an opportunity for both reflection as well as critical evaluation of course material and student work.
