Software Engineering is increasingly becoming an important area of study for the advanced technological applications in the modern business world. Today, computers are used extensively in areas of banking, communications, medicine, energy systems, design and production areas, and all these computers cannot function without proper and efficient software applications.
Software Engineers develop these application software as they consider user requirements, cost constraints, technical and economic feasibility, security and dependability, ease of maintenance, product quality and deliverability. Therefore, Software Engineers should be highly skilled in project management, communication and administration, in addition to having a strong technologic and engineering background.
For this reason, a cross-disciplinary approach is adopted for the Software Engineering curriculum at Izmir University of Economics: in addition to software engineering coursework, courses from computer engineering, general sciences, economics and social sciences are integrated into the course of study to endow our students with all the necessary skills required by the Industry at large.
İzmir University of Economics Software Engineering degree track is designed to educate the engineers of the future having the highest standards of software engineering, principles and application design aptitude.
The Department teaching philosophy is to integrate skills of teamwork, management, communication and creativity upon a strong technical background. As a result, the coursework will also emphasize application development and project management. It is our aim to provide our students with all the necessary skills required, from start to finish, in software development.
