    Course Summary

    An MEng in Software Engineering from Edinburgh Napier University indicates to potential employers that you are a trained, capable software engineer who is ready to step into nearly any industry role with a minimum of extra training.

    Not only will it instil a great deal of knowledge and skill upon graduates, it will give them the professionalism and commitment to quality that employers in the software development field demand. They will graduate with a great deal of well-eared confidence in their own abilities, and in their competence in a wide range of roles.

    It is presented here as an integrated BEng/MEng program, but it can sometimes be approached from an appropriate degree from any recognised university or educational institution. It will not only expand your academic horizons within the narrow field of Software engineering, it will give you the opportunity to put everything you’ve learned into practice with a series of industry-facing projects and deliverables.

    If you are changing direction after starting in another career area, you will possess valuable work experience and professional awareness. Many employers actively seek candidates with these benefits. Our network of contacts, a dedicated employability service and a reputation in the legal profession mean we also have an outstanding track-record of finding students legal employment.Many employers favour GDL students in an increasingly competitive legal job market. Through studying another degree subject, you will have gained many transferable skills. By taking the conversion route into law, you are showing motivation and determination by choosing law at a later stage than some others. This looks good to employers.
