Software Engineering with Digital Technology Partnership

  • This is a degree apprenticeship. Those applying to the programme will be employed as an apprentice with PwC, a leading technology employer and will combine traditional university study with work-based learning.

    On completion of our exciting four year programme you’ll be awarded a BEng degree in Software Engineering with Digital Technology. As part of the programme, you’ll have gained extensive on-the-job training with PwC. Through this training you’ll have the opportunity to gain an insight into a variety of teams across the technology spectrum whilst developing your technical specialism as you progress through the apprenticeship.

    Without software engineering, you wouldn’t be reading this page. Software innovation has transformed the way we think about, and interact with technology. In fact, all the forms of communication, interaction and access that we take for granted today are made possible by software in some shape or form. Which is why the demand for software engineers has never been greater.

    From improving the efficiency of the apps we use in order to make them more sustainable, to developing scalable and secure app infrastructure, Software Engineers have skills that drive innovation. In essence, they are problem solvers with the ability to take an existing software system and creatively refine, enhance and transform it into something even better.

    This degree programme is designed to equip you with the analytical, reasoning and practical skills required to design, develop and deploy large software systems. It blends the best knowledge and skills from both Software Engineering and Computer Science. Apprentices could find themselves working on a wide variety of technology projects and systems supporting PwC internal and external clients solve important problems.

    Developed through very close partnerships with PwC, the degree apprenticeship is designed to combine the analytical, reasoning and practical skills learnt in a typical university degree combined with key industry attributes like collaboration, teamwork and workload management which you will need to succeed as a professional software engineer.

    As a degree apprentice, you will be employed as an apprentice at PwC for the duration of your traditional University based study and will complete your work based learning at one of their local offices. During your placements, you'd work on a variety of exciting client projects, alongside our highly skilled teams. During your time at university you’ll get to experience the full time student lifestyle. But as the placements are paid you’ll have some money to enjoy it too. You’ll gain a degree, and at the end of the apprenticeship, you'll continue your career at PwC as a graduate and beyond, using the skills, network and experience you've gained.
