What is a software engineering degree?
A software engineering degree is a degree programme that allows you to specialize in designing, building and testing user-centric software.
What do you learn in a software engineering degree?
In a software engineering degree, you learn computer programming, algorithms, data structures, human-computer interaction, web development, software project management, architecture and operating systems, software security and usability, e.t.c.
Software Engineering graduates work as application developers, database administrators, game developers, software testers, web designers, software engineers, e.t.c. Tech is constantly evolving, so new roles are always emerging in the software industry.
There are criteria and requirements that prospective students must meet to study software engineering in Nigeria. These specifications are in check with the Nigerian University Commission's requirements (NUC).
