The Software Engineering programme at the University of Bolton, UAE has been designed collaboratively working with industrial partners to ensure that students study a comprehensive program of relevant industrial topics. Many of the graduates find successful careers in this lucrative area of employment.

Coursework throughout the course utilizes realistic scenarios intended to prepare students for their career after university. This applies both to the technical areas studied, but also the output required from the student such as technical proposals or reports to management.

Much of the Software Engineering programme coursework undertaken by students is project based and often involves group working. The ability to work successfully and productively in teams is an essential element of modern software engineering.

Internationalisation: Software Engineering and application development is by virtue an international business and therefore isn’t bound by geographical area. The course covers such issues as culture, socialisation, localisation and international computer and communications standards.
