REBOOT YOUR CAREER WITH A MASTER’S IN SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT.
Software development skills can set you apart in a global economy that is increasingly tech-driven.
This intensive, one year, Master’s (MSc) in Software Engineering - specifically designed for graduates of non-computing disciplines - takes the skills you developed in your undergraduate degree and transforms them into the technical, analytical and professional abilities required to take on a range of roles within the ever-expanding IT industry.
A World-Class Programme
The course, run through the School of Electronics, Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at Queen's University, Belfast, will provide a solid understanding of software engineering principles. You will develop the ability to analyse software problems, create and evaluate software designs and develop and appropriately test software solutions on this course. It will also further develop your critical analysis and evaluative skills and direct them towards the unique challenges in software engineering.
Students studying the MSc in Software Development will also learn to uphold professional and ethical standards and actively engage with future technological and theoretical developments.
The tech-sector is booming and so are employment opportunities in software development. Additionally, given the diversity of careers available, the variety of skills gained from a non-IT primary degree are strongly valued by IT employers.
