Summary

This four-year programme, comprising a blend of theoretical and practical work, ensures that you’re career-ready upon graduation.

We are known also for our passionate, active community. With dedicated support services and student networks to help you with personal or academic issues, we’ll provide you with all the resources necessary for success.

A Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) in Software Engineering focuses on giving you the skills to engineer large, complex and fault-tolerant systems that function reliably, are effectively developed, and can be maintained efficiently.

Beyond imparting fundamental knowledge, the specialisation also prepares you for the technological environment ahead, so you can pursue courses and applications in areas such as human-computer interaction, serious games, smart energy consumption, learning aids, autonomous robots, and intelligent software agents.

This specialisation is co-taught by the Department of Computer Science, so in addition to computing applications, technology, and systems knowledge, you’ll also gain the necessary engineering perspectives and project management methodologies that are now essential to the field. This gives Software Engineering an edge over many adjacent fields, as the understanding of the entire lifecycle of software development and maintenance ensures that your professional knowledge extends beyond technical capabilities.

Core topics include:

  • Algorithm design and analysis
  • Computer organisation and architecture
  • Data communications
  • Fundamental mathematics
  • Human-computer interaction
  • Operating systems
  • Programming languages
  • Project management and professional ethics
  • Robotics and machine learning
  • Software design, construction and development

Where could this programme take you?

Your specialisation, personal interests and chosen electives can impact what you pursue. With quantitative, problem-solving, communication and technical skills, you’ll easily adapt to the technologically-driven nature of many industries. All our specialisations are accredited by Engineering New Zealand, a signatory to the Washington Accord, making our BE(Hons) a recognised engineering qualification in many countries.
