Graduates with an in-depth background in engineering software and the interfacing of engineering and computing are well placed for rewarding careers, and to be at the forefront of developing Internet of Things (IOT) systems. You’ll develop the skills you need to work in all aspects of the ICT industry, including software design, information technology, telecommunications, and computer network engineering. You’ll combine expertise in electronic engineering with advanced knowledge of computer hardware and software, and be able to apply your skills to designing systems ranging from the embedded microprocessors in modern mobile devices to high-performance computing. You’ll develop your design skills using industry-standard programming languages, operating systems and applications. You’ll also study specialist units on topics such as digital communication systems, computational intelligence and embedded computing design. Overall, you’ll spend around 60% of your time working with advanced equipment and engineering software systems in our labs. In your final year, you’ll work on an open-ended design project that will require research, project management and a creative approach to the solution. And you can select elective modules so as to study what interests you in greater depth. 

A software engineer will work with other engineering professionals and focus on discovering solutions to software-related problems; will evaluate problems and issues that users encounter, and develop new ideas and resolutions. Some typical career opportunities are:

  • Software Developer
  • Telecommunications Software Engineer
  • Software and Hardware Integration Engineer
  • Software Verification Engineer
  • Computer Network Engineer
  • Computer Network Planning Engineer
  • Software Testing Engineer
  • Artificial Intelligence Design Engineer
The B.Eng (Hons) in Engineering Software will prepare me to work as an engineer in systems involving both hardware and software.”
“I wanted to study engineering and the B.Eng (Hons) in Engineering Software allows me take engineering but with a focus on software development.
I want to work with electronic hardware systems that are highly programmable to perform many different functions. The B.Eng (Hons) in Engineering Software will let me design embedded systems and robotics.
