Breaking through the glass ceiling as a software engineer requires more than just industry knowledge and programming skills. It requires a passion for self-improvement, and a thirst for continuous learning and development.
By asking questions, challenging the status quo, and focusing on professional and personal development, you can break out of the mould and become a highly successful specialist in your field. The MSc Software Engineering course at the University of Bolton nurtures the talent of graduate software engineers who want to take their career to the next level. Here are some ways a master’s degree and personal development programme can help you:
Hone your skills
With the vast software experience of our course leaders, and through the connections we have with industry experts, we can help you train and upskill in realistic workplace scenarios. This helps you turn theory into applied practice, giving you all the necessary tools to develop your creative thinking, problem-solving and decision-making.
Ignite your passion for learning
One of the most famous quotes by Socrates, “I know that I know nothing”, is a great statement of humility. But it also inspires continuous improvement and learning, something that every successful software developer needs in order to keep growing. Our master’s programme for graduate software engineers will light that spark, encouraging students to broaden their horizons.
Stay abreast of the latest technology
In the ever-evolving field of software development, reskilling to remain relevant is key. Over the past decade alone, hundreds of programming languages have been created. In addition, technology trends such as cloud computing, edge computing, Artificial Intelligence (AI) and 5G have all had an impact on the work of software specialists.
