    Course Summary

    The University of Glasgow’s Software Engineering degree program prepares students to enter a series of rapidly growing industries in different ways. This program can be taken as a BSc or an MSci, depending on your current academic achievements and future career or educational goals.

    No matter what version of the program you take, you will study both the theoretical side of computing science and the practical methods today’s software engineers use to develop, maintain and debug large, complex and often physically disparate software architectures and systems.

    The University of Glasgow opened their Centre for Computing Excellence in 2017, and have since been honoured as one of the top schools for computing science in Scotland, and the UK as a whole. Better still, you can pursue an opportunity for a year in industrial placement, giving you not just an enhanced degree but vital working experience and industry contacts of your own. 

    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.
