Building technology for the future.

The expanding integration of internet technologies coupled with the growth in e-commerce has resulted in a rising demand for software engineers. As computer systems become increasingly sophisticated, software engineers are expected to design, implement, safeguard and update systems. They are the ones leading the way in developing the next generation of operating systems, applications, integrated systems, artificial intelligence and robotics.

Through KDU’s Bachelor of Software Engineering (Hons), students are exposed to valuable insights in utilising systematic and disciplined approaches to creating quality software products. They also gain core software development knowledge, which includes skills and techniques in modelling and analysis, software design, development, verification and validation, maintenance and management systems.

Students will also be involved in a variety of projects ranging from business applications, high-precision and safety-critical scientific and engineering systems, education content management to media content management in this ever-expanding digital content industry.
