Bachelor's Programme in Software and Systems Engineering

Software and technology have become increasingly important in our daily lives.

With the aid of digitalisation, societies are renewing their structures and operations, which offers countless opportunities for IT experts.

Programming skills give you the tools to solve great societal challenges. Challenges can be related to, for example, digitalisation, reducing energy consumption, the research and development needs of the business world or guiding consumer behaviour towards sustainability. Societal or organisational problems may also be solved by introducing a new software service, product or system to provide assistance and information to the people around us.

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

The Bachelor's Programme in Software Systems Engineering is a unique, international double degree programme developed in cooperation with Hebei University of Technology (HEBUT) in China.
