BSc (Hons) Software Engineering (New Yearly Programme - FT) E320

1. Objectives Information and Communication Technology (ICT) sector being one of the most knowledge-intensive branches of the economy, there is demand for human resource in the software engineering discipline in both the public and private sectors. Software engineering is a field that deals with high-level designs and solutions that guide the development of specific software projects or products. The programme has been tailor-made to produce graduates who are proficient in developing software according to Industry standards, in terms of methodologies and technologies. The course provides students with both theoretical knowledge and practical skills in areas such as software development, integration & testing and software project management. Graduates will possess the engineering skills required to design and implement software systems. The scheme of study offers graduates essential technical and soft skills to seamlessly make the transition from University to the software development industry and adapt to a professional environment.

The programme is in line with international recommendations of computing curricula for Undergraduate Degree Programs in Software Engineering and designed in collaboration with software industry.

2. General Entry Requirements As per General Entry Requirements for Admission to the University for Undergraduate Degrees. 3.

(ii) Diploma Award The diploma is provided as a possible exit point in the programme. A student may opt for a Diploma in Software Engineering, by making a written request, provided he/she satisfies the requirements, as per University regulations. 5. Programme Duration Normal (Years) 3 Maximum (Years) 5


6. Credits per Year Maximum 48 credits, Minimum 6 credits, subject to section 5. Yearly modules to be registered for only once at the start of the module, normally at the beginning of the academic year as specified by the Faculty.

7. Assessment 7.1 Continuous and written assessment of modules Each module will be assessed over 100 marks (expressed as %). Assessment will be based on written examination and continuous assessment. The written examination will be of 3 hour duration for yearly modules carrying 6 credits. The continuous assessment will count for a range 30 - 40% of overall percentage mark of the module. Continuous assessment may be based on laboratory work, seminars and/or assignments and should include at least one class test per semester. For a student to pass a module, an overall minimum of 40% should be attained in that module, as per University regulations. Written examinations for the yearly modules will be carried out at the end of the academic year. 7.2 Final Year Project The assessment of final year project CSE 3000(5) will be based on the written dissertation, software/system demo and presentation by the student. 7.3 Diploma Project For a student exiting at Diploma Level, the assessment of Diploma project CSE 2000(3) will be based on project report, presentation and software/system demo, as per University regulations.

8. Specific Regulations If Cummulative Point Average (CPA) of a student is less than 40%, s/he will have to repeat the entire academic year, and retake the modules as and when offered. However, s/he will not be required, if s/he wishes, to retake modules for which Grade C or above has been obtained. Students are allowed to repeat (a year) only once over the entire duration of the Programme of Studies. Registration of a student will be terminated if: i. the CPA is less than 40 at the end of an academic year and the student has already repeated one year of study; or ii. the maximum duration allowed for completion of the Programme of Studies has been exceeded.
