Software Engineering and Management, 180 hec

About the programme

The development of software and smart, efficient IT-solutions is changing the way we live our lives. People with the right skills, who – with the help of technology and management – can create innovative products, are sought after around the world. Those skills are what you develop when you study Software Engineering and Management.

During the education you will be confronted with engineering and management problems from all areas of software engineering. You will also learn how to work in teams to find considerate solutions to problems without known solutions.

The education develops your social and technical skills, both important for a successful career in IT. You will practice working in teams to find considerate solutions to problems without known solutions, experience the roles in a high performing team, and how a cohesive team can be more than the sum of its parts.

You will confronted with engineering and management problems from all areas of software engineering: 'how do large organizations specify software?', 'how can they ensure sound architectures?', 'what language tools and platforms are available to realize software?', 'how is quality obtained and managed?', 'what are the challenges of decade long software lifetimes?'.

The courses start with application development in the small, and gradually proceeds to software engineering in the large.
