Studying Software Engineering is not easy. The complexity of designing a computer system requires you to have good math skills. However, with a comprehensive and fun learning approach, this course is interesting to learn.
Such an approach is offered by the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (RMIT) University for the Bachelor of Software Engineering program. The university, located in the city of Melbourne, is one of the 100 best universities in the world for computer science and information systems (QS World University Rankings by Subject 2017).
Through this program, you will learn how to design software and develop systems to meet specific performance goals. You will learn in many ways, including from lecturers, seminars, workshops, presentations, group discussions and syndicate work. There are also opportunities for you to “go international” through the Education Abroad program that allows you to do one or more semesters at an overseas institution in more than 120 partner universities.
The other fun thing is that you can join the RMIT programming club as a place to help you familiarize yourself with team-based project work and get a chance to enter the national competition in a fun way. The club brings together students from diverse backgrounds and allows you to learn from senior student mentors.
Not only that, there is also an industry placement in the third year to give you the opportunity to practice the science that has been learned during the lecture and gain valuable practical experience in the workplace. You can also develop your network with experienced people, even before you get your degree. RMIT is willing to help you find an internship placement.
The degree in software engineering is perfect for those of you who want to develop large-scale software, as well as enjoy math and system design combined with computer science. In addition, this course is suitable for those of you who are very happy to work as part of the team and have ambitions to create products and systems that are very efficient.
