With a degree in Software Engineering you will typically be developing intelligent products for a global market in which cultural understanding and knowledge of local standards and conditions are crucial for success.
Software is part of many aspects of our daily lives and it is embedded in e.g. computers, the TV, the smartphone, the Internet, the car, the train, and the stove. That means that software engineers will have career opportunities in many different sectors – in Denmark as well as abroad.
As an MSc in Software Engineering, you could be employed as, for example:
- Software developer
- Mobile application developer
- Systems developer
- Systems consultant
- IT and systems architect
- Software quality engineer
- Product manager
- Project manager
- Head of IT strategy
What the corporate world thinks…
Large projects require big ideas
“- Our clients and projects in software development for large e-commerce solutions and mobile applications are continuously growing and become more complex. Therefore, we need software engineers that can both develop software in detail and recognize the complexity of the projects in a broader perspective. At Hesehus they become part of a project team developing some of the most ambitious and strategic e-commerce solutions in Denmark. Here, they obtain a role in all phases right from requirement gatherings to deployment and planning of architecture.”
Mette Reinholt Mortensen, Development Manager at Hesehus
Engineers with knowledge of the full development process create intelligent solutions
“- I see great potential in Software Engineering! Denmark demands this type of engineers and the need will only grow in the future as we’re increasingly utilizing intelligent software solutions for easier and better everyday lives for a lot of people. At MV Nordic we have a special need for civil engineers in Software Engineering because they’re both able to examine and understand user needs as well as the complex systems and connections that underlie modern software. Engineers in Software Engineering are capable of designing, programming and testing the software and thus become a part of the whole development process. We create innovative and unconventional ways of learning and communicating through the software systems we develop. With us, an MSc in Software Engineering will have to participate in specialized and dedicated multidisciplinary development teams with the focus of developing digital learning programmes and training tools in the virtual universe.”
Torben Worm, Vice President at MV Nordic.
Severe scarcity of engineers
A new report shows that in five years 7,000 engineers will be in demand in Denmark.
