Why study software engineering for business?
Computers are essential to our lives. We use them at work, to organise our social lives and to play games.
They’re also fundamental to services that keep society running smoothly such as hospitals, banks, governments and public transport.
Software engineering is about building programs so these computers fulfil their purpose. With more jobs available than qualified graduates, job prospects for software engineers have never been better.
