Software Product Engineering

Degree of Master of Science (120 credits) with a major in Product Development, specialisation in Software Product Engineering

This master’s programme gives students the knowledge and experience to lead software product teams and to act as senior developer, software architect, project manager, requirements engineer, test manager or system engineer.

Software is everywhere – visible as a product or service in its own right, or hidden as a component of a wider product. Thinking of the code base in product terms from the outset can ensure that the delivered software is successful both in its initial release and as a platform for product evolution over the longer term.

In everyday speech, we are use concepts like apps, software, IT systems, platforms, etc. This diverse software landscape is further enriched by the increasing use of rapid and dynamic (agile) methods and approaches. Software product development involves people working together in teams to which individuals contribute their expertise in various areas, providing a structured yet creative way of moving development forward. A key challenge facing software engineers – and their customers and bosses – is the constantly changing technological context of the programming work. Pragmatic software practitioners must balance the benefits of the latest technical innovations with the risks of abandoning established practices.

Software development is in many respects an applied (practical) science. With an emphasis on “evidence-based software engineering”, this Master’s degree ensures that you are familiar with the latest research and practice in the software field. It equips you to review research reports critically, and it prepares you – should you wish – for a further career in software research.

Modelling is a key strand of thinking and practice in product development within the School of Engineering. In this Master’s you will learn how modelling can underpin software development.

The applicant must hold the minimum of a bachelor’s degree (i.e the equivalent of 180 ECTS credits at an accredited university) with at least 90 ECTS credits in computer engineering, electrical engineering (with relevant courses in computer engineering), or equivalent. The bachelor’s degree should comprise a minimum of 15 ECTS credits in mathematics. Proof of English proficiency is required.
