About the course

This course is comprised of core engineering and foundation subjects and specialist software subjects, plus a series of electives from any UTS discipline area. The core and software-specific subjects will give you a sound understanding of the scientific principles and mathematical methods used to solve critical problems in this discipline, and of the trends and innovations shaping the international software industry. 

You’ll also study a number of studio subjects. Here, you’ll work with your peers and teachers in collaborative environments, applying engineering techniques to real-world problems in order to develop software products and solutions.

The degree culminates in a Capstone Project, which brings together the knowledge and skills you’ve gained over the course as a whole, such as engineering principles, planning and design, ethics, management, and communication.
