Melbourne School of Engineering
Currently enrolled students:
Software engineers combine an understanding of computer science, design, engineering management, mathematics and psychology to manage the development, maintenance and production of large scale software systems.
This specialisation focuses on team-based projects, in which students must conceive, design, implement and operate software engineering solutions. Students develop technical skills and the ability to apply engineering principles to solving real-world problems.
A year-long industry project provides the opportunity to work closely with ICT professionals, and many graduates find roles in this field, in addition to those in other service-oriented and software development areas.
Intended learning outcomes
To produce graduates who are skilled in software engineering principles and have the ability to apply them to complex, open-ended engineering tasks and problems.
