Software Engineering program at BU offered an excellent graduate program covering the core software engineering concepts with a strong foundation in topics such as Requirements Analysis, Software Development, Quality Assurance, Project Management and Software Design. We have been taught by top academic staff who are acknowledged as experts in their fields and are at the forefront of developments in their subject area.I had four  years of industry experience and had worked on numerous small and large-scope software projects before joining this programme.After completing the programme, it enhanced my vision for every aspect of the development process, including concept, design, testing, QA and implementation.Also helped to improve my project management skills to manage even the most complex software development projects.I would definetly recommend this programme to others.

Arda Başoğlu

Software Engineer/Founding Partner, BNB Yazılım, İstanbul, Turkey

Started in September 2007 and graduated in August 200         9


Before I started this program I had worked as a programmer for 4 years. And before that I had several IT job positions like system engineering, customer support, system support etc. Software business was always a passion for me. And after enrolling the program my passion got stronger. I learned the latest developments in software engineering and met new disciplines I did not have the chance to do so before. Every professor gave me unique perspective. Furthermore, my class mates were so amazing people that I learned too much from them. It was a tough time but I’m glad I joined and finished this program.

Started in February 2004, and graduated in February 2006.


In this program, we have seen most basic and necessary knowledge about Software Engineering, Requirements Engineering, Computer Networks, Programming Languages, Databases, Project Management, Software Design, System Programming are the ones that I remember first. And, motivation, that is, if you face harder real life problems, use your knowledge and more to success.


I think we earned , good viewpoint about Software Engineering. And, this is because of program content and our professors teachings. Two months after graduation I have found my current job. Currently I am working in both domestic and international defence industries software projects. I am dreaming to continue PhD,by combining my program knowledge and my real life projects experience.


Yes, of course I appreciate our professors for their teachings and their positive attitude.


I strictly advice this programme to friends, who want to learn about Software Engineering. Of course to ones who will work and appreciate.
