UNDERGRADUATE

Bachelor of Engineering (Honours)(Software)

Studying software engineering will prepare you to drive software solutions to enhance our future for generations to come.

Degree Details

Our Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Software) combines the underlying principles of software engineering with strong technical and leadership skills. You will:

  • tackle real-world, open-ended and complex programming problems
  • take new and refreshed courses that emphasise divergent thinking, collaborative learning and teamwork
  • work with industry mentors
  • pursue work experience and internship opportunities with some of the world’s best-known companies
  • complete an eight-week practical experience.

Career Readiness

Demand for software engineers is extremely strong. There are currently not enough graduates to meet industry demand, so there is no better time than now to study for a software engineering career.

Our graduates are employed across a diverse range of industries including: DSTG, Saab Australia, Google Australia, Atlassain, BAE systems, Raytheon, Microsoft, Maptek, ElmTek, and with government agencies.

In the early years of the program students build a scientific and engineering foundation of computing, mathematics and digital electronics, in preparation for more specialised software engineering courses. The third and fourth years have a strong emphasis on group software development projects with close industry connections.

A major is a great way to specialise and pursue topics of interest without narrowing future career options. All graduates of this degree— irrespective of their major—qualify as software engineers, and can pursue a career in any specialist field within the profession. Majors are available in Defence Systems, and Smart Technologies.

Completion of a minor introduces students to an aligned field where there technical knowledge can be applied. This allows students to explore career opportunities in these areas. A minor is available in Entrepreneurship.

Students are required to complete eight weeks of approved practical experience.

Areas of Specialisation

Majors
Majors are available in:

  • Defence Systems
    South Australia is Australia's defence state and home to many important defence investments and industries, including shipbuilding and the over-the-horizon radar project. Software engineers are critical to defence capabilities, and this major is ideal for launching a career in the field.
  • Smart Technologies
    The cross-disciplinary Smart Technologies major prepares students for careers in the fascinating field of artificial intelligence, and provides a broader perspective than direct artificial intelligence or electronics majors. Courses cover physical electronic devices and virtual sensor signal analysis, algorithms, and artificial intelligence systems.

Minor
A minor is available in:

  • Entrepreneurship
    Take the technical knowledge from the degree and create ventures in areas from large corporations, to small businesses, the not-for-profit sector, and community organisations through an Entrepreneurship minor. All technology advances in the past decade were once an idea that is now a reality through entrepreneurs. Students learn the processes, risks, rewards, motivations and societal impacts of innovation and entrepreneurship within regional, national and global perspectives.
