Software has become an increasingly important element of many products that are developed today. There has been a shift in development costs from hardware development to software solutions.

The European Master on Software Engineering is constructed to meet these challenges by educating software developers in advanced software engineering concepts that covers the entire development chain, from the business management perspective to the technical management and the development perspectives.
