Career paths: It is possible to identify several different roles that graduates of the joint degree pathway are expected to fulfil – competent software engineering technician, trainee computer programmer / software developer, – and these vocational outcomes have formed the basis of this strategically planned curriculum. Initially, students are likely to gain jobs as a trainee skilled practitioner with the prospect for later progression leading to posts of responsibility supervising working within a team based development and support settings within significantly large, as well small scale, industrial and commercial settings. The aim of the pathway is primarily seen to equip graduates to develop the intellectual and pragmatic skills needed to develop quality software artifacts that not only function, and meet client requirements, but also fit within the pragmatic constraints. The role of external and internal standards is also emphasized as being vital. Equally, such topics will equip the graduate to proceed to a higher degree and or participate effectively within a research or academic setting. An important feature of the joint pathway is that the entire software production lifecycle is fully covered from an academic as well as a vocational perspective. Recent graduates have obtained a variety of graduate trainee positions both in industry and the public sector, with good prospects for further promotion in a competitive job market.
