Intended learning outcomes

After having completed the Master's programme you will have a solid foundation in software engineering.

You will be able to describe and apply computer science, software engineering knowledge, best practices, and standards appropriate to engineering complex software systems. You will be able to:

  • Analyse a problem and identify and elicit functional, non-functional and sustainability requirements appropriate to its solution.
  • Demonstrate empiricism and familiarity with the methods of academic research and writing.
  • Design, evaluate, and adapt software processes and software development tools to meet the needs of an advanced development project.
  • Elicit user needs and design an effective software solution.
  • Communicate logically, convincingly, and effectively both orally and in writing.
  • Function effectively in teams and adapt teaming strategies to improve productivity.
  • Recognise human, security, social, and entrepreneur issues and responsibilities relevant to engineering software and the digitalisation of services.
  • Integrate into a multi-cultural working environment with a practical orientation and collaborate in professional networks.
  • Acknowledge life-long learning as a way to stay up to date in the profession.

Graduates of the Software Engineering specialisation will be able to:

  • Design software systems and define architectures in open and distributed environments in a holistic and integrative manner.
  • Apply software engineering best practices and standards to software development and the evolution of diverse types of software systems.

Graduates of the Digital Transformation specialisation will be able to:

  • Analyse and develop digital business models and value creation practices through re-engineering of processes and services.
  • Evaluate the business impact and cost benefits of digitalisation on individuals, organisations, society and the world, and design supporting enterprise architectures.
