B.Sc. in Software Engineering prepares students to excel in the field of Information Technology, scientific research and graduate studies, in various Software engineering fields including specifications design, coding and testing of software, database, WWW and large-scale software. The program Involves designing, creating and maintaining software through the application of technologies and practices from computer science, project management, engineering, application domains, interface design, digital asset management and other fields. The program integrates scientific knowledge with practical skills in the field of Software Engineering to enable graduates to compete in the labor market.


The Software Engineering program is designed according to international standards such as the ACM/IEEE 2014 compliant with ABET requirements (For more information please refer to http://www.abet.org/). In addition, the program was benchmarked with International universities across the world such as Mississippi State University (USA), University of Alabama (USA), Monash University (Australia), University of Manchester (UK), University of Edinburgh (UK).
