Entry requirements

How will this course enhance my career prospects?

Employability is understood widely as encompassing knowledge, skills and a professional attitude which your tutors expect you to display in all your units. All University of Bedfordshire courses aim to help you to be prepared for the world of work. The Careers Service is there to support you throughout the duration of your study. Our curriculum gives you skills that are valuable for a career within the Software Engineering, but it is also relevant for a wider range of applications.


The unit `Research Methodologies and Project Management in particular requires you to work in a team so as to apply a current project management methodology that embraces all of these knowledge areas in an integrated way while going through the stages of planning, execution and project control; you will work as part of a team, take responsibility and make autonomous decisions that impact on the project team performance.


The unit `Applied Software Development Techniques and Applications of Open Source Frameworks help you to bridge the skill gap between the academia and industry by addressing the practical aspect of the software engineering process at the development phase of the software lifecycle. You will gain the key techniques and skills required by the professional development through a capstone project using open source frameworks.


In addition and somewhat complementary the project fosters independent and autonomous study: you learn to take up the responsibility of conducting your project, typically derived from your own ideas, in collaboration with a dedicated member of the academic staff as project supervisor.
