Bachelor of Information Technology (Hons.) in Software Engineering
Sarjana Muda Teknologi Maklumat (Kepujian) Kejuruteraan Perisian

Software is ubiquitous and central to our lives. We interact daily with software systems – at home through computer games, at the office through online services and in the car through embedded control systems. We expect software to be reliable, efficient and effective in safety critical systems as well as desktop computers. Software engineering applies both computer science and engineering principles and best practices to the design, implementation, testing, maintenance, and evolution of software. Software engineering covers not only the technical aspects of building software systems but also management issues.

Some of the skills that you will acquire in the programme will include an understanding of all aspects of software development and the software development process from the early design stages to long-term software maintenance and evolution; the ability to construct and evaluate software in the context of physical systems and real-world applications; and a breadth of knowledge and skills in software engineering, as well as related areas of engineering, Computer Science, Mathematics and complementary studies, that will provide you with a base for life-long learning.

Career Information

The software industry has grown dramatically over the years: Mechanical and electronic devices in automobiles, airplanes, entertainment and communication equipment, and manufacturing are being replaced by software components because a software is more adaptable and can provide greater functionality. Software is used in medical, transportation and financial systems to automate critical tasks.

Scientists and business researchers use software to sift through data warehouses and identify pertinent facts and trends. Banking, insurance and other businesses use software to automate and personalize the services they offer to their customers. This proliferation of software applications has led to an urgent and growing demand for software professionals in Malaysia and all over the world.
