BS Software Engineering

It is rightly said that in this modern era, our civilization is run by software. It is evident from all the gadgets and appliances we use in our daily lives, such as smartphones, automation systems in hospitals, schools, and other government and private institutes. All these are miracles of software Engineering. Nowadays, it is almost impossible to imagine any activity, either at home or at workplaces, which is at least semi-dependent on software. BS in Software Engineering is a four-year postgraduate degree program. If we talk about what software engineering is in simple words, it can be defined as dealing with computer programs and relative documentation. These software programs are based on available relative data. It is an engineering field that revolves around basic concepts, tools, and techniques to establish high-standard practicable software.
