Software Engineering is the application of engineering to the systematic development of software. It is a relatively new area of study and is becoming increasingly critical due to the emerging challenges of building reliable quality software systems. Software Engineers apply theoretical knowledge to design, develop, analyze, and test high quality software systems.
The program will provide you with the skills to design systems, components, and processes to meet desired needs within economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability, and sustainability constraints. You will study courses in software maintenance and evolution, software requirements and specification, software design and architecture, software testing and quality assurance, web design, software engineering, object-orientated design patterns, operating systems, and system and networks administration.
Tuition is based upon the College and/or Department classification as opposed to the course classification or level. Tuition rates for undergraduate students vary from the tuition rates for graduate students.
The tuition fee calculations are an example only and are based on the assumption that elective courses will be taken with the College that the student is taking their major with. However, if the student selects elective courses outside of this College, the total cost payable may increase or decrease to reflect the tuition rate of the College where the elective is delivered.
Costs of books and supplies are not included in the Tuition and Fees. Students at Abu Dhabi University are also required to pay certain fees and other costs to attend the University. Abu Dhabi University reserves the right to change tuition and fee rates at any time. A tuition schedule is published prior to registration for each semester.
