Software Design Studio
Our Software Engineering and Design Studios are spaces allowing our students to work intensively on conceiving, designing and developing software products together.
They are also spaces for teaching, with an emphasis on practical experimentation and hands-on work. The studios are fitted with amenities allowing students to work in groups for extended periods of time, and the feedback from students who have utilised the studios has been outstanding thus far.
