Software engineering is the discipline of creating high quality software environment in a systematic, controlled and efficient manner, while maintaining it affordably. It involves the application of engineering concepts, techniques and methods to develop the software systems. A software engineering program develops the professionals who have a mastery of software development principles, theory, practice and process. The goal of software engineering is to use the science and technology already available to create products and tools for use. Software engineering drives its essence from computer science as other engineering disciplines do from natural or life sciences, with an emphasize on issue of process, design, measurement, analysis and verification providing a strong foundation in engineering principles practices as applied to software engineering development. The curriculum for the bachelor’s degree program covers all essentially needed areas, e.g. software engineering, computer science and software quality and testing while paying special attention towards mathematics, physics and communication skills.
The program curriculum ensures breath across aligned disciplines and supporting subjects; and depth in most areas of the software engineering body of knowledge. The department puts forth the following educational objectives for the students entering the software engineering program.
Graduates will apply theoretical and practical knowledge of Software Engineering for analysis and design of quality software systems of varying complexities. Abilities and skills of analytical thinking, logic formulation, algorithm construction, complex designing, appropriate validation and economic maintenance will be inculcated. They will also be prepared to successfully pursue higher studies.
Graduates will be sensitive to environmental, professional, civic and societal contexts, committed to ethical action, and engaged in life-long learning to remain effective members of their communities. They will be equipped with the skills and attitudes to be responsible, effective and thoughtful contributors to society.
Graduates will apply their abilities, talents, and insights creatively and productively in fields and professions beyond those explicitly represented in, or anticipated by, the Software Engineering curriculum. Graduates will make their mark on the world in many ways: they will become entrepreneurs, academicians, technologists and make creative contributions in engineering, science, and art.
