Why study this course

Software engineers apply computer science, engineering and mathematics to design, develop, and test software for a range of applications, systems and computer networks. For example, they might develop programs that do recordkeeping and payroll, or develop an intranet, an application for iPhone or iPad, and so on. Software engineering focuses on software development, but goes beyond programming to also assess and meet customer needs, as well as designing and testing software. Developing software solutions often involves assembling extensive amounts of code into working applications, as well as updating and fixing problems in existing software.

Most of the content/courses irrelevant to real work. Content was rushed h and not very thought out. My current employer has spent months teaching the graduates what wasn't taught in university.

Didn't really make me job ready. The course needs to be updated to match what industry is looking for.

Student review
A great course that landed a few high paying jobs. Some interviewers had heard good things about RMIT’s CSIT courses and told me that they were confident in RMIT’s ability to prepare candidates as well as RMIT’s ability to teach relevant materials.
