Software Engineering&Business Informatics

fontys col

Software Engineering and Business Informatics is about the complete process around the development and improvement of computer applications; from idea to implementation to going live and maintenance. It’s much more than just programming! Think about analysis of requirements, advising customers, system design and project management. The first three semesters are the same for both Software Engineering and Business Informatics. Afterwards, you choose your specialisation. During the final part of your studies, the internship, the Software Factory (project in cooperation with companies) and the graduation project are main components.

Software systems need to be developed and maintained. This is a challenge from a technical perspective, but also from a user perspective. Applications have to fit user needs, in order to be usable and acceptable. The development and implementation of state of the art and usable computer applications is what we teach. We provide you with sound knowledge and skills in the wide world of informatics. The study course has a highly practical approach, in which you apply gained knowledge in many practical work and real world projects, under professional supervision.

Software engineers combine sound knowledge about information technology and excellent people skills. You will work in teams using modern development methods. As a software engineer you are able to develop a wide range of applications, for different business domains. You are enthusiastic about the possibilities of Information Technology and you love to work together. Of course you are technology minded, but at the same time user focused.
