The University of New England is the only Australian public university to be awarded the maximum 5 stars for Overall Experience by the Good Universities Guide, 13 years in a row. UNE has delivered distance education since 1955—that’s longer than any other Australian university. Perhaps that’s why students continue to rate UNE so highly for student satisfaction and teaching quality. With over 170 degrees offered online, and more than 20,000 online students, UNE is the expert in online education.

Software development is a collaborative undertaking that requires the integration of different technologies to build solutions that are elegant and intuitive.
This subject introduces students to the fundamentals of how software is produced. They will develop a strong understanding of how data is represented and manipulated within a computer system by solving problems in a series of collaborative software development tasks. Students will build interactive software in a high-level programming language and apply the skills needed to effectively communicate design choices.
All assessment tasks must be attempted in order to pass the unit. Final Examination: 2 hrs 15 mins duration. It is mandatory to pass the Final Examination in order to pass this unit. Relates to Learning Outcomes 1-5 UNE manages supervised exams associated with your UNE subjects. Prior to census date, UNE releases exam timetables. They’ll email important exam information directly to your UNE email address.
