National Software Academy
A centre of excellence for software engineering in Wales.
The National Software Academy is a new partnership between Cardiff University, the Welsh Government and industry leaders. Its aim is to address the shortfall of qualified, industry-ready software engineers, by producing sought after graduates with industrial experience who will be recognised as leaders in their field.
Based at The Platform, a new technology hub in Newport, the Academy offers an innovative degree in Applied Software Engineering with a focus on the skills, knowledge and hands-on experience required to be immediately effective as a commercial software engineer.
Key features of the Academy include leadership from tutors still highly active in industry and a series of guest lecture programmes from experts and practitioners working in related companies.
Its vision is to deliver industry-focused degrees in software engineering aimed at providing students with academic experience of relevant and leading-edge technologies delivered within an industrial framework, utilising industry-proven tools and techniques to facilitate transition into the job market.
