Why study this course

Knowledgeable, high profile professionals are the backbone of the IT industry, and this degree gives students the opportunity to learn new programming languages, architectures, and paradigms to create new software applications. Students will complete courses in dynamic web development, data structures and algorithms, agile coding and more. There are also electives that enable students to either add breadth or depth to their studies. The material covered in this program reflects the current and future needs of practicing software developers, and skills will be enhanced as students apply their learning in their final year project. On completion, students can look forward to seeking employment in a role where they contribute to identifying new areas of software process improvement within an organisation, or carry out a software process improvement assignment, justified by measurable business benefits. Communication skills will be an asset in this area, as graduates report on project progress, anomalies risks and issues. Graduates may also be involved in software release and post-release activities, including product launches, and implementation roles such as installation, configuration, programming/customisation, integration and data migration.
