The Software Engineering and Digital Transformation programme from LUT University addresses the application of engineering principles of software and systems development, including design methodologies, business process and service modelling and re-engineering, operation principles, and maintenance and quality assurance approaches.

Digital transformation in this context refers to the change associated with the application of the software engineering body of knowledge for the transformation and modernisation of digital assets of business and industry domains.

You can specialise in one of the two areas – Software Engineering or Digital Transformation.

The Software Engineering specialisation builds upon the Bachelor’s Programme in Software Engineering and aims at developing professional skills in this discipline as well as providing opportunities for students to engage in and develop research abilities.

From a practical point of view, this specialisation prepares students for specialist roles or project and team leader positions.

The Digital Transformation specialisation aims at building software and service design and redesign, business process re-engineering and digitalisation expertise for modern businesses, and industry workflow digitalisation.
