Summary

Become an expert in software engineering and web development with Staffordshire University. Take the opportunity to master the latest software and web technologies used in industry and get a head-start on your career.

There is an increasing demand for new graduates with both software engineering and web development skills required to design and develop applications for business and industry. Make yourself stand out from the new-graduate crowd with our Computer Science (Software Development) MSc, where you’ll gain an advanced knowledge of the skills that modern employers crave.

Our course aims to develop and expand knowledge and skills in application development for desktop, web, mobile and beyond. The award curriculum is diverse – it covers core business areas, programming in languages such as Java, JavaScript and PHP, and delivery to different device platforms. You will have the opportunity to study in one of the rapidly growing areas of computing from both an applied and theoretical perspective.

Your career is important to us, so we also offer you the chance to undertake a 12-month work placement before your dissertation. This will lengthen your course, but give you the chance to make connections and gain vital work experience in software engineering or web development before graduation.

If you choose to leave before completing the full 180 credit MSc course, you are entitled to a lower award if you have achieved pass grades for the necessary credits. This would be 60 taught module credits for a Postgraduate Certificate (PgCert) or 120 taught module credits for a Postgraduate Diploma (PgDip).

On successful completion of study, we will issue the following award: MSc Computer Science (Software Engineering).

Assessment

There are two types of assessments: practice (also called formative) or formal (also called summative).

Practice assessments do not count towards your final mark. These are your chance to test your understanding and learn how to improve for the real thing.

You’ll have formal assessments at the end of each module. These could include essays, exams, or portfolios.

Careers

After completing the Computer Science (Software Engineering) MSc you’ll be equipped to work in the following roles:

  • Software Engineer
  • Web application developer
  • Mobile application developer
  • E-commerce specialist
  • Enterprise Systems Engineer

Eager for more knowledge? Upon completion, you’ll be ideally placed for further academic study at PhD level.
