Learning outcomes

As a graduate in software engineering, you will develop profitable, sustainable and user-friendly solutions for different needs.

You will understand that software and IT hardware are tools for solutions: they often serve as an essential support for other disciplines, in addition to creating opportunities and services themselves.

After completing the studies in the Bachelor's Programme in Software and Systems Engineering, you will be able to participate in software system and service development projects as a developer. You will learn scientific thinking and be prepared for scientific work. You will be able to utilise math and science to solve problems.

You will learn to take into account aspects of digitalisation, information management and sustainable development when designing software. You will be able to apply logical thinking and science to solve problems and real-life challenges.

The business perspective in your studies will help you outline what tools you can use to create software and how you will be employed when you graduate. Already during your studies, you can take advantage of the university's start-up and software development platforms and start your own business. At LUT University, you can further deepen your commercial skills as a developer of new products and services.
