Computer science encompasses everything from the design of hardware to the development of algorithms and programming languages.
Gain advanced technical skills in programming to create or optimise programs, systems or applications that are used across multiple devices.
Advanced programming skills are essential for large scale information management, complex data analysis and data visualisation requirements, predictive modelling, cyber security, artificial intelligence, gaming, and e-commerce. These transferable skills apply to many industries, including health, science, technology, business and government.
In your final year, you’ll undertake your own independent research project under the guidance of an academic supervisor and present your findings to the scientific community.
Deepen your scientific expertise by combining your specialisation with a major or minors from a wide range of science disciplines. Or broaden your skill set even further by choosing from 46 minors in other study areas, including languages, communication, design and economics.
With a qualification in advanced science, you’ll be equipped for roles such as a web, gaming or app developer, software engineer, information security specialist, data scientist or computer systems expert.
Alternatively, kickstart your career in research by progressing into a higher degree by research, such as a PhD.
