The Software Engineering programme at the University of Bolton has been designed collaboratively working with industrial partners to ensure that students study a comprehensive program of relevant industrial topics. Many of the graduates find successful careers in this lucrative area of employment.
Coursework throughout the course utilises realistic scenarios intended to prepare students for their career after university. This applies both to the technical areas studied, but also the output required from the student such as technical proposals or reports to management.
Much of the coursework undertaken by students is project based and will require self study with guided learning. The ability to work successfully and productively is an essential element of modern software engineering.
Internationalisation: Software Engineering and application development is by virtue an international business and therefore isn’t bound by geographical area. The course covers such issues as culture, socialisation, localisation and international computer and communications standards.
This is a Top-Up programme designed to allow you to progress from an appropriate prior qualification to an honours degree level. An induction programme will facilitate effective transition to honours degree study.
You should have a Level 5 Ofqual regulated qualification in a computing related subject. Students should also have previous knowledge of Python. If English isn’t the first language, IELTS 6.0 with normally no less than 5.5 in any band (or equivalent) is required.
