Software Development - BSc (Hons)
What is Software Development?
Software Development is a Level 8 programme that will give you the skills and knowledge you need to design and build applications that people use every day, for the desktop PC, for the web and for mobile devices (such as smart phones and tablets). As a Software Developer, you will be involved in all stages of the application from start to finish. You will be taught how to take a concept/idea from a description and develop it to make a fully working application. You will develop problem solving and programming skills to solve simple (and eventually complex) real-world problems using computers.
