Why choose Computer Science?
Be part of a fast-moving industry that offers you the chance to be at the forefront of new technology, opportunities worldwide and great starting salaries. Innovative and resourceful, computer scientists are experts in the design and implementation of software applications and devise new solutions for computing problems. You will develop skills in areas such as complex problem solving, artificial intelligence, robotics, computer graphics, bioinformatics, web development and data security.
Even though computer scientists can be involved in large software development projects, their science-based skills make them ideal for researching, designing and implementing the best software solutions to specific parts of the application; not to manage the whole software development process.
Why study with us?
Our computer science graduates are among the best in Australia and are actively recruited by industry. You will enjoy excellent career prospects as many businesses worldwide require graduates skilled in development and implementation of software solutions for complex business problems, systems analysis and design, and the management of computer resources.
What will I study?
Algorithms, different programming languages, artificial intelligence, compilers, computer graphics, computer networks, database systems, data security, graphical user interfaces, object oriented methodologies, operating systems, theory of computation and web engineering.
Graduates find work in areas such as computer software systems for business and engineering, advanced computational techniques for graphics, animation and computer games development, developing of new technologies for defence, security and database systems, emerging areas as bioinformatics and information based medicine, computational intelligence, state-of-the-art software for internet applications, portable devices and distributed computing, robotics, among others. Opportunities exist all over the world in almost every industry from IT to business, manufacturing, defence and many more. Starting salaries are high and graduates are sought after.
