Program Overview

For the first time in Egypt, students can earn a dual bachelor’s degree in Software Engineering from Galala University (GU) and Arizona State University (ASU) studying at the Galala campus. 

Software systems are complex, often including millions of lines of code. The GU-ASU dual degree program in software engineering blends engineering, computing, project leadership and software construction. It fosters scientific research by preparing entrepreneurial software developers for postgraduate and innovation studies.

Students learn how to make creative software solutions to today’s problems. Graduates of the bachelor’s degree program in software engineering possess the knowledge and skills of a defined engineering approach to complex systems analysis, planning, design, and construction. The BS Software Engineering program applies fundamental programming and software principles to software development including design methodologies, operation principles, and maintenance and testing approaches.

The program has a unique, project-driven curriculum, establishing a new model for software engineering (programming) education. It is built around the concepts of engaged learning, discovery-based education and learn-by-doing. Students learn by engaging with hands-on projects, commonly as a member of a development team. They complete projects every semester that provide emphasis on communication, teamwork, critical thinking, and professionalism.

The program’s study plan enables graduates to master Software Engineering methodologies, methods, and tools for producing complex software systems with international standards and ethics. Graduates apply principles and techniques of Software Engineering to analyze complex computing problems and design, implement, evaluate, verify, manage, enhance, and maintain high-quality software solutions that meet given sets of software requirements in a systematic, controlled, and efficient manner.

  • AccoladesThe ASU Software Engineering BSE degree is Aaccredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET,

Career Opportunities

Graduates of this program solve a broad set of transdisciplinary problems and apply new technologies to improve the quality of life. They are prepared for advanced study in computing or an allied field or to enter the computing profession, most commonly as application software engineers (programmers). They design and engineer innovative systems that may include mechanical and electrical components that interact with software.

Some software engineering jobs may include:

Creating applications for mobile devices.

Creating web applications.

Designing, creating and validating software for avionics, robotics and similar systems fields.

Career examples include, but are not limited to, those shown in the following list:

Computer Programmer

Computer Science educator

Information Technology specialist (IT specialist) 

Software Developer
