Announcement: B.E. Software Engineering

Announcement to Prospective Students on BE. Software Engineering

We are pleased to announce the launch of a new degree program in Software Engineering at the Royal University of Bhutan, College of Science and Technology. This interdisciplinary programme aims to equip students with a solid foundation in mathematics, computer science, and engineering.

Programme Overview

Our software engineering courses will build on this foundation and introduce disciplined development processes, technical documentation, software design principles, project management, and quantifiable analysis. In addition, non-technical requirements such as teamwork, technical presentations, reports, peer evaluations, and co-op work experience will be emphasized.


Furthermore, we are excited to announce that students in our Software Engineering programme will have the opportunity to major in three exciting and rapidly growing fields: Artificial Intelligence, Software Security, and Dev Ops. These majors will allow students to focus their studies and gain specialized knowledge and skills in these high-demand areas.

  1. The Artificial Intelligence major will provide students with a deep understanding of machine learning, natural language processing, computer vision, and other AI-related technologies. Students will learn how to design and develop intelligent systems that can learn and adapt to new data.
  2. The Software Security major will equip students with the knowledge and skills needed to protect digital systems and networks from cyber-attacks. Students will learn about security policies, risk management, cryptography, and cyber defense strategies.
  3. The Dev Ops major will focus on the integration of software development and IT operations, enabling students to create and deploy software applications more efficiently and reliably. Students will learn about continuous integration and delivery, infrastructure automation, and monitoring and logging tools. 

We are confident that these majors will provide our students with valuable skills and knowledge that will set them apart in the job market and prepare them for successful careers in these rapidly evolving fields. We look forward to welcoming you to our Software Engineering programme at the College of Science and Technology.


Potential Job Opportunities

As a software engineering graduate, you will be well-prepared to pursue a career in this field. Some potential job opportunities include working as a software engineer at DHI group of companies, Runa Capital portfolio companies, or the Royal University of Bhutan itself. These positions offer competitive salaries and excellent growth opportunities.


RUB-CST Co-Operative Education Programme

A Work-Study scheme with multiple internships with domestic & international organizations

Our co-op programme is an integral part of the Software Engineering programme and will provide you with relevant work experience. Our programme integrates academic studies with relevant work experience, allowing you to apply what you have learned in the classroom to real-life work settings. You will have the opportunity to work at attached companies for multiple internships, allowing you to gain up to two years of meaningful, relevant work experience on your résumé. Additionally, you will improve your interview skills, create connections through networking with employers and coworkers, explore alternate career paths, and earn money to help pay for tuition and costs of living.

We believe that this programme will provide you with the knowledge, skills, and experience necessary to excel in the field of software engineering.

Interested students can register here.

The last date of registration is 17th April 2023.
