The Importance of Self-Improvement for Junior Software Engineers

Having a self-improvement plan is essential if you want to make it as a software engineer in an evolving industry. The University of Bolton’s MSc Software Engineering course is designed to help you develop your skills while building your confidence, essentially preparing you for any fast-paced working environment.

We rank No.1 in the UK for Teaching Quality and Student Experience in Computer Science Courses*, so there’s nowhere better to enjoy personal and professional development. We believe that self-improvement is key for career success, and here are some reasons why it’s so important:

1. Demand for skills is high
There’s a growing demand for expert software developers, particularly in the global gig economy. This means that job opportunities are abundant, but to get the best jobs or to be successful as a freelancer, it’s vital to hone your skills.

2. Industry is constantly evolving
The world of software design and development is changing, and fast. Just as an example, there are new programming languages coming out all the time, as well as new technological advancements to keep up with. Our programme benefits from well-established links with the software engineering industry, and we’re able to continually monitor and update the course to make sure the content is industry-relevant. We train our students to remain reactive, because adapting to technology is a must in this profession.

3. Soft skills matter too!
In addition to developing your technical ability, we also help you improve your soft skills. When it comes to self-improvement for junior software engineers, communication, teamwork, problem-solving and organisation skills are just as important. In fact, soft skill development can help you advance your career in management and leadership. And with countless studies touting collaboration as a driver for workplace performance, there’s no better time to upskill.

If you’re looking to attend a Manchester university with a reputation for excellence, look no further than the University of Bolton. We provide a positive learning environment to help students develop technical and soft skills, and pride ourselves on delivering #UniAsItShouldBe. That’s why students have voted us No.1 for Student Satisfaction for the three years running!**
