Creative…collaborative…future proof. Software engineering.
When you study a Bachelor of Software Engineering at the University of Newcastle your degree will develop your capability to solve global challenges. You may develop software for digital forensics analysis to help fight crime, or work in defence and combat cyber attacks. You could design wearable health management devices or write the software that powers robotically assisted surgery. Or you might create sophisticated apps that support waste minimisation processes.
What is software engineering? Software engineers focus on analysing a client's needs. You will learn to design the best software architecture solutions, as well as to coordinate the implementation, integration and testing. Through a unique coursework program you will learn to document the results of your research and how to provide long-term maintenance. Software engineering is behind much of the everyday technology we take for granted - from our ipads, computer software and mobile phones through to digital televisions, computer games and online banking.
