Overview

On completion of our exciting four year Software Engineering with Digital Technology Partnership  programme at Queen's University Belfast you’ll be awarded a BEng degree in Software Engineering with Digital Technology. As part of the programme, you’ll have gained extensive on-the-job training with PwC. Through this training you’ll have the opportunity to gain an insight into a variety of teams across the technology spectrum whilst developing your technical specialism as you progress through the apprenticeship.

Without software engineering, you wouldn’t be reading this page. Software innovation has transformed the way we think about, and interact with, technology. In fact, all the forms of communication, interaction and access that we take for granted today are made possible by software in some shape or form. Which is why the demand for software engineers has never been greater.

From improving the efficiency of the apps we use in order to make them more sustainable, to developing scalable and secure app infrastructure, Software Engineers have skills that drive innovation. In essence, they are problem solvers with the ability to take an existing software system and creatively refine, enhance and transform it into something even better. 

This degree programme is designed to equip you with the analytical, reasoning and practical skills required to design, develop and deploy large software systems. It blends the best knowledge and skills from both Software Engineering and Computer Science. Graduates could find themselves working on a wide variety of projects, from Artificial Intelligence to Augmented Reality and 3D Printing to Drones, we’re using these technologies to help our clients work better and prepare for the future.
