Software Technology

If nobody concerned themselves with software technology, you would still have to use a rotary dial telephone whenever you wanted to get hold of your friends.

Fortunately we are now well supplied with programmed appliances and Internet-based IT systems: the washing machine, the mobile phone, Facebook and Twitter to name just a few that have become indispensable. But these software solutions need to be secure and reliable, so it is important to educate people who can design high-quality software.

Are you into software and maths?
On the Software Technology programme students learn how to use advanced computer science and state-of-the-art mathematics to develop new IT solutions involving anything from advanced gaming computers to intelligent patient monitoring.

They start by learning the fundamental principles of programming. Then their knowledge will be gradually extended to include computing concepts and maths-based techniques that provide a basis for designing secure and reliable IT solutions—solutions that can be used in new, innovative products to make everyday life easier, more secure and more fun for us all.

What about hardware?
Our mobile phones and other electronic gadgets are getting smaller and smaller while being required to do more and more. The size, speed and power consumption requirements are often so tough that software and hardware have to be developed as a single package.

Although the emphasis of this BSc programme is on software, students can choose to concentrate on how to put efficient solutions together using state-of-the-art, redefinable hardware components.

Lots of applications
By studying Software Technology at DTU, students get to grips with a range of general languages, tools, concepts and theories. As a qualified software engineer, graduates are able to use these skills to design IT solutions in all sorts of exciting areas—e.g. computer games, robots, traffic management, business systems and hospital equipment—in close collaboration with users and specialists.
