Who is a Software Engineering Graduate

A Software Engineering Graduate has an adequate grasp of the required principles and techniques to produce software systems on time, within budget and with few or no defects. Our graduate is expected to apply these principles of engineering to the design, development, maintaining, testing, and evaluation of the software and systems that make computers or anything containing software work.

Thus, the training given in our program ensures that our graduates have a personal, business and technical skill to advance their career wherever they want to go. In particular, we prepare them to understand that choosing an occupation, getting that first graduate job, and growing in that job will require planning, self awareness, flexibility and a forward-looking attitude to help manage the personal transitions, as well as the technological and economic changes of the future.

In that regard, our program offers diverse career options as including:

  1. Software developer/ engineer,
  2. Software architect,
  3. Analyst/ programmer,
  4. Games developer,
  5. Project manager,
  6. Mobile application developer,
  7. Test analyst/engineer, and
  8. IT consultant.
