BS in Software Engineering

Introduction 

Software Engineering is the field of study which involves the development of stable, efficient and robust software systems according to the modern engineering principles. Our Bachelor program in Software Engineering covers various aspects of software engineering which include:

  • Customer requirement identification, specification and analysis

  • Software project management

  • Software design based on the outcome of requirement analysis

  • Software product development based on the detailed design

  • Software quality engineering

  • Software maintenance

Most of real-world software systems are either safety-critical or real-time in nature. For the development of such systems, it is important to apply engineering principles which are practiced by the engineers in the field. Our program also equips the students with requisite concepts in the supporting areas of mathematics, computer sciences and social sciences.
The increasing transition from manual to computerized system in Pakistan provides an opportunity to the Software Engineering graduates to apply the knowledge they acquire during their studies to solve practical problems of the industry. Over the last decade, the market demand to hire Software Engineers has radically intensified. In addition, the doors of higher education institutions are always open for Software engineers with practical knowledge to impart their insight of the field to younger generations.
