Software Development (Top-Up) BSc (Hons)



What will I learn?

From mobile devices to smart cars and homes, software development is key to modern life. With increased reliance on digital technologies, and a significant skills shortage in the technology sector, software developers are in demand. Approximately 21% of all jobs in technology are for developers and one of the most attractive aspects of a software development career is job security (JustIT, 2020). Across Yorkshire and the Humber, occupations where shortages are most acute and where occupations have the strongest growth include higher skilled digital professionals (WYCA, 2021).With this course, you'll be able to enter this in-demand industry and thrive in a software development role that includes analytical and programming knowledge, as well as project management. Emphasis on practical skills means applying your learning to real-world problems using industry-recognised methods and software tools, while an individual research project will see you complete a complex software development project from the ground up.From designing, building and testing the practical solutions needed to manage a development project, you will gain the knowledge to demonstrate analytical and programming skills to do so successfully. This course continues a strong emphasis on practical skills. You will also address and respond to real-world problems using industry recognised methods and software tools. Alongside enhancing practical skills in mobile app development, you will cover managing quality, agile based software development and digital entrepreneurship, digital technology and e-marketing. The individual research and development project is a key element where students will study research and critical thinking skills in the context of Software Development. Using this knowledge, you will complement your software development practical skills to research, plan, manage, develop and evaluate a complex software development project.
