Major Code: 7075 Degree Awarded: Bachelor of Science
Delivery Mode(s): Classroom Admission Status: Undergraduate
Location(s): Main Campus - Melbourne

The software engineering major prepares students for careers as practicing professionals in software architecture, design, implementation, testing and evolution, or for graduate study. The engineering of software is multidisciplinary, spanning computer science, engineering economics, engineering problem solving, epistemology, human factors management, mathematics, quality control and safety.

The educational objectives of the bachelor of science degree program are to prepare students so that within a few years after graduation they will be leaders in the development of software where their primary role may be in requirements elicitation, software design, application development, software testing or software evolution; they will be actively engaged in continual professional development; and will be using their technical knowledge, interpersonal and personal skills and professional attitude to advance their careers, the careers of others and the organizations for which they work.
