Bachelor's programme in Software and Systems Engineering

Software and technology are increasingly important parts of our daily lives.

With the aid of digitalisation, the structures and operating methods of society are being renewed, which offers countless opportunities for IT experts.

Programming skills give you the tools to solve big societal challenges. Challenges can be related to, for example, digitalization, reducing energy consumption, the research and development needs of the business world or, for example, guiding consumer behavior towards sustainable development. Or simply to solve a societal or organizational problem by introducing a new software service, product or system to provide assistance and information to the people around us.

Software engineering is for people interested in problem solving and who want to contribute to making things faster, cheaper and more efficient in the future. You will produce solutions that take into account the needs of both individuals and large companies.

This is one of four unique, international, double degree programmes developed in cooperation with Hebei University of Technology (HEBUT) in China. Students admitted to the Bachelor's programme in Software Systems Engineering at LUT University will receive a degree certificate from two universities after they have fulfilled the degree requirements of both universities. HEBUT is a respected public university in the city of Tianjin.
