The Software Technology (ST) Programme educates trainees in advanced software engineering.

As a trainee you will focus on developing and strengthening your technical and non-technical competencies. These competencies and skills are related to the design and development of software for resource-constrained software-intensive high tech systems, such as real-time embedded or distributed systems.

This course addresses formal methods of specification, verification and design together with software engineering and system technology.
