UoB – BEng (Hons) Software Engineering Top-Up


BEng Software Engineering Top Up


The Software Engineering programme at the University of Bolton has been designed
collaboratively working with industrial partners to ensure that students study a
comprehensive program of relevant industrial topics. Many of the graduates find
successful careers in this lucrative area of employment.

Coursework throughout the course utilizes realistic scenarios intended to prepare students for their careers after university. This applies both to the technical areas studied, but also the output required from the student such as technical proposals or reports to management.
Much of the coursework undertaken by students is project based and often involves group working. The ability to work successfully and productively in teams is an essential element of modern software engineering.
Internationalisation: Software Engineering and application development is by virtue an international business and therefore isn’t bound by geographical area. The course covers such issues as culture, socialisation, localisation and international computer and communications standards.

This is a Top-Up programme designed to allow you to progress from an appropriate prior qualification to an honours degree level. An induction programme will facilitate effective transition to honours degree study.
