Course content

Today, software is becoming ever more complex, developed with very short time to market, and required to cope with changing requirements. This scenario calls for increased levels of flexibility and agility, both in the technologies used and the processes followed for engineering software. This MSc will provide a sound background on the methods and techniques that can meet these challenges. Hands-on modules based on the Eclipse framework will ensure that this knowledge is framed in practical contexts of usage.

All of our Computer Science MSc degrees are available with an optional (usually paid) industry placement. If you take a 'with Industry' degree, your qualification will be MSc in Agile Software Engineering Techniques with Industry.
