Software Engineering

Study at the forefront of Digital Transformation and shape the technological foundation of the digital products and services of our time. 

Our goals are to develop the next generation of software engineer specialists. Students develop solutions and computer programs to activate computer game interaction to build high-quality 2D and 3D games. They will also collaborate on projects with fellow programmers and game artists to create a commercially viable game from concept to live prototype.

In this software engineering program, students not only learn about current challenges and solutions in software design and architecture, but they are also taught to develop solutions that are based on professional clean and secure code and learn about the new trend in mobile application development. The students will be able to build software and design and implement smart software benefit from the learning outcome from cloud computing and machine learning.
