The intensive one-year Masters conversion course is aimed at highly motivated graduates with a good honours degree in any discipline other than computing. There is a strong demand in the local economy and beyond for graduates with software development skills. This course will give you the skills needed to apply best practice in software engineering across a variety of organisations. While the course has a particular focus on the employment needs of the local economy, the skills and abilities developed are easily transferred to a global stage.

You will cover topics including programming skills, computer hardware, operating systems, professional software development, software architecture and design, database systems, and web-based app development.

You will be well placed to find employment in private industry, public sector organisations and in research. You’ll gain the necessary skills to work in roles such as software developers, software testers and/or academic or commercial researchers, as well as have the capacity to diversify into other roles such as independent consultancy.
