The Department of Software Engineering and Information System offers the Bachelor of Software Engineering programme. The aims of the programme are to:
Bachelor of Software Engineering
This programme focuses on software development skills. Equal attention is also given to computer software design and development, and its application in information processing.
Study on computer architecture provides fundamental understanding of computer physical structure, components and the functions. Such an understanding is very important to enable the utilisation of a computer as a powerful tool to store and process information. Notation or formalism of information would first be prepared before the processing of the information. This should reflect the information structure and the dedicated processing flow, which leads to the development of software applications that reflect the data structure, algorithm and programming approach needed.
In the real world, computer applications are complex and challenging in their delivery. Therefore, certain algorithm techniques need to be introduced and applied. The vast amount of information to be managed requires knowledge on the theories of file structure, database and information retrieval skills. In this context, problem-solving alternatives using artificial intelligence, system modeling and simulation, calculation theories and database are applied to complete the students’ information management skills.
The degree programme emphasises the main principle of software engineering, methods and tools for software system development, including techniques in software project management, tools usage such as CASE tool and software quality. This will provide a strong foundation for the students to a higher level education.
The program components consist of university courses, core modules, specialization, specialization electives and free modules. The university courses consist of 21 credits, the core modules consist of 78 credits, the field electives consist of 12 credits and the free modules consist of 12 credits. Total credits to graduate are 123 credits not include 2 credit co-curriculum courses.
