About this course

Computer science is the scientific and practical approach to computer-based system design, development and operation. It deals with areas ranging from the fundamental principles of computation through to tools and techniques for IT system development and evaluation, including identifying and solving systems design issues associated with efficiency, usability and security. Computer science applications extend into specialised areas including mobile computing, artificial intelligence, robotics, and large-scale information management involving information retrieval and web search engines.

If you want to work with cutting-edge technology and be a part of creating technologies that have not yet been invented, a computer science career could be for you.

Customise your degree

Foster your passion and shape your career through complementary study areas. As well as choosing a major area of study, your course includes a second study area, which can be either a second major or double minor.

A second major can complement your major area of study, giving you the opportunity to develop a significant depth of knowledge and skills in two discipline areas.

IT Second Majors

  • Computational and Simulation Science combines the study of science and mathematical models with the use of computers to provide quantitative analysis and visualisation in order to gain insight to the solution of scientific problems from a range of scientific application areas. Computational and Simulation Science second major graduates will be in demand, to apply the latest computing and computational techniques to specialist application areas.
  • Data Science provides the necessary skills to be a data scientist including statistical methods and data visualisation, computational tools for and data management techniques for large datasets, and high-performance computing resources and techniques. This unique skill-set in statistics and computing will allow you to cope with sophisticated models applied to complex and/or large datasets.

You might prefer to expand the breadth of your studies by adding to your major with two minors. You can choose from the information technology discipline, or you can broaden your studies by completing minors that offer general knowledge and insights in study areas from across the university.

IT Minors

  • Business Process Management is a systematic approach to making the workflow of the organization more effective. You will learn how to discover, analyse, model, improve, automate and monitor various business processes.
  • Enterprise Systems are large scale application software packages that support business processes and information flows across departments. This minor develops the knowledge and skills required in supporting Enterprise Systems within the modern organisation.
  • HCI develops the knowledge and skills to engage in human-centred design activities involving emerging technologies in order to create new forms of human-computer interaction.
  • Intelligent Systems an introduction to the field of robotics and intelligent systems technologies to students interested in careers in this area. Students will develop knowledge and skills to specialise in developing physical and virtual intelligent systems.
  • Mobile Applications develops the knowledge and skills to design, develop and distribute applications or games delivered as a Mobile Application. It examines the role and application of ubiquitous and mobile technologies to the individual and enterprises.
  • Social Technologies develops the knowledge and skills to engage in innovation processes using current and emerging social media. It examines the role and application of social media to the individual, social entities and enterprises.
  • Software Development develops the knowledge and skills to enable students to develop sophisticated software systems in a variety of environments and problem domains.
  • Technology Innovation provides students with a broad set of skills to engage in innovation processes for technology intensive environments which can be applied in a corporate or start-up setting. In addition, students will develop competencies related to design and business.
  • Computational and Simulation Science provides students with knowledge of modelling, simulation and visualisation as used in a range of scientific application areas.
  • Information Systems develops skills in working with people, data, business processes, and technology in finding innovative ways of making these more effective and efficient.
  • Computer Science provides students with both practical skills in IT system development plus an understanding of the basic principles underlying modern computing technologies, and an appreciation for how such principles help us design and assess IT systems.
  • Programming develops the knowledge and skills to be able to design and build software systems for a variety of environments and problem domains.

IT Extension Minors

  • Data-centric Computing develops the knowledge and skills needed to specialize in developing better and novel data-centric systems using a variety of tools, techniques and theories.
  • Networks and Security develops the knowledge and skills involved in contemporary electronic communications infrastructure, concentrating on fundamental networking technologies and information security principles.
