Student reviews

Though this module contained no programming exercises, it was the most useful module I studied as a software engineer.

You'll study software engineering as a discpline, and all the fun that goes with it! It covers agile development practices, how to gather useful requirements, how software is designed, testing and test-driven development, architecture... All the fundamentals you need to actual create valuable software in addition to coding.

I now work as software engineer post-graduation. I've worked with lots of different languages, some I knew already and others totally new, but I use what I learnt in this module every day, no matter the project. Would thoroughly recommend to anyone interested in becoming a dev, Scrum Master, or similar.
