Bachelor of Software Engineering

Bachelor in Software Engineering

In the strictest sense, software engineering is the application of engineering principles to the design, development and implementation of software. Because software engineering is such as a unique, scientific and technically-driven field, special training and formal degrees are required. By getting a degree in software engineering, graduates can work in any number of fields creating video games, developing internet applications, running computer networks or implementing computer security measures for an organization. Find out more about software engineering degrees and careers, and learn about salaries and employment projections for this specialized field. Combining business sense with programming know-how, software engineers devise software application solutions for business problems. Software engineers work with different platforms such as the internet, mobile devices, and desktop computers.

The practice of software engineering blends engineering, computing, project management, and software development. Software engineers manage a comprehensive list of critical functions across broad knowledge areas such as web and mobile applications, embedded systems, networking, data, security and system administration. There critical functions span the entire development process, which often includes business needs and use analysis, design and development, implementation, quality assurance testing and product release. SoE has started bachelor in Software Engineering from the academic year 2018.


The aim of this program is to produce graduates that are competent in the production of software and to be able to design and implement suitable software applications on a wide scale. The educational objectives of the BE Software Engineering program is to

  1. practice software engineering to serve state and regional industries, government agencies, or national and international industries;
  2. make strong contributions to teams that are responsible for the specifications, design, construction, testing, deployment, maintenance, or use of software systems;
  3. achieve personal and professional success with awareness and commitment to their ethical and social responsibilities, both as individuals and in team environments.
  4. maintain and improve their technical competence through lifelong learning, including entering and succeeding in an advanced degree program in a field such as engineering, science, or business.
