Welcome to the
Department of Software Engineering
The Department of Software Engineering belongs to the Faculty of Computing and currently consists of more than 40 people from 15 different countries.
Our tradition in software engineering originates from 1990 when we launched Sweden's first education program in software engineering. The department's research and education environment, SERL Sweden ‒ Software Engineering Research and Education Lab Sweden, has steadily expanded in the last years. The department is responsible for several study programs in software engineering and web-programming on Master- and Bachelor level, including a 2-year distance program. We are also involved in two of BTH:s Master of Science of Engineering programs.
Research and education at the Department of Software Engineering are fully aligned with BTH:s overarching profile (applied IT and innovation for sustainable growth), and are conducted in close collaboration with partners from both the private and the public sector.
Our strength is the focus on empirical research to strengthen industry's competitiveness in the development of software-intensive systems, services and products in close collaboration with companies such as ABB, Ericsson, Saab, Sony, Telenor and Volvo. The department's research is internationally top-ranked by Journal of Systems and Software, based on its strong publication record in prestigious journals. Our research and education continue to expand and we are now looking for 10 new people in total on several levels.
