Software engineering




Software engineering is a modern specialty focused on the development of algorithmic and programming software that satisfies the requirements and wishes of the customer. Software engineers are in short supply in the labor market among other IT professionals, as the IT industry is growing rapidly, which requires constant updating of qualified personnel.

Education in the specialty 121 "Software Engineering" is implemented within the educational program "Software Development and Testing" and is based on the study of basic disciplines and professional training. Students gain mathematical knowledge, learn modern programming languages, software testing, operating systems, databases and other disciplines needed to work in the specialty.

By studying the educational program "Software Development and Testing", you will gain theoretical knowledge and practical skills in programming, including the basics of front-end and back-end development, testing, web design, software testing. Practical classes are conducted by IT specialists working in leading Ivano-Frankivsk IT companies.
