Bachelor of Computing
(Software Engineering)

Software engineers incorporate the latest technology in the design and implementation of large-scale software systems for commercial purposes. This course aims to produce graduates who are well-versed in the principles of design, measurement, and analysis applied in the context of the development of software-based systems.

You will receive a strong foundation in computer science, with further emphasis on software requirements gathering, design, implementation, and testing. You will also focus on communication skills, professional responsibility, ethics, interpersonal relationships, teamwork and time management. In your final year, you will undertake an an industry-based project

Entry Criteria

Eligibility for the programme is as follows:

  • GCE Advanced Level (Local) - 3 passes in one and the same sitting in any subject stream. OR GCE Advance Level (Edexcel / Cambridge) - 3 D passes in one and the same sitting in any combination of subjects.  OR Successful completion of the Foundation Certificate in IT at SLIIT Academy.
  • A pass in the Aptitude Test conducted by SLIIT.

Students may also apply with pending Advance Level Results.

  • Implement secure processes based on best practice when developing software and dealing with computer systems
  • Evaluate standard algorithms, techniques, and software technologies in a manner that is appropriate for a given problem and think critically and creatively to generate innovative and optimum theoretical and practical solutions
  • Identify, evaluate and synthesise information from a range of computing sources to optimise the process of software design and implementation
  • Document software development activities and artefacts and communicate them in written and oral form to both technical and non-technical audiences and communicate effectively in ways appropriate to the audience and purpose
  • Effectively use new and existing technologies, recognising their advantages and limitations
  • Sustain intellectual curiosity by updating their knowledge, engage in continuous training and research, and take control of their own learning and development
  • Recognise and apply IEEE/ACM/ACS standards in the process of software design and development
  • Contribute to society using technology in an ethical, legal, and socially responsible manner
  • Demonstrate initiative, leadership and ethical practice when working independently and collaboratively
  • The aim of this major is to prepare the students for areas of ICT found to be most in demand and for positions that are most difficult to fill.
  • Curtin works together closely with industry partners to fine tune the course and provide placement opportunities to good students in the final year.
  • On completion of the three year degree, students who have performed well will be eligible to complete an extra year of study to obtain an honours qualification, BH-SCNCE Bachelor of Science (Honours).
  • The research focus of an Honours degree provides a pathway for career advancement at a higher level than the base degree. Students who perform well in the first year of this course can apply for transfer to the Bachelor of Advanced Science (Computing) course, although acceptance is not automatic.
