MSc in Software Development

Mauritius has emerged as an international and competitive Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) destination and is steadily positioning itself as a regional ICT hub. In recent years, the ICT sector has experienced a rapid and sustained growth and is gradually emerging as a major pillar of the Mauritian economy. As a result, there is a very high demand for ICT professionals including software analyst, software developers and software testers. 

The MSc Software Development programme aims to provide non-computing graduates (e.g. Engineering, Science, Mathematics etc), with the necessary skills to apply their knowledge to a wide range of areas in the ICT industry. It is a response to the increasing prominence of digital information in our society. The course is designed to permit a high degree of flexibility in that students may choose from a variety of well-focused streams. 

Graduates of this postgraduate programme will be able to maximise their career opportunities through the provision of a solid software development foundation enhancing the skills gained through their first degree. Students of this programme will develop the technical, analytical and professional skills required to take on software development roles within the ICT industry.
