Software Engineering is an engineering domain focused on the design, development and maintenance of software systems through well-defined principles and practices of engineering. The department of Computer Science at the UET New Campus is offering a Bachelor of Science degree in Software Engineering with an aim to train students in all aspects of software system life cycle. 


The mission of the Bachelor of Science degree in Software Engineering is to educate students how to engineer and maintain software systems within constraints and prepare them for lifelong learning. The program will produce successful professionals and entrepreneurs who can define, design, develop and deliver high quality software solutions while adhering to ethical and professional standards.

Program Educational Objectives (PEOs)

The Program Educational Objectives (PEOs) of the Software Engineering program are to produce graduates who are ready to:

  • be successful professionals in the field with sound knowledge of software engineering.
  • be lifelong learners who are ready to enhance their software engineering knowledge through self-education and/or further studies.
  • exhibit strong leadership, management, communication and interpersonal skills in multi-disciplinary environments as well as demonstrate higher standards of professional integrity and moral values with positive impact on society and environment.
