What will I learn?

The Bachelor of Computer Science teaches students the strong programming, technical, mathematical, and problem-solving skills that they will need in their careers.

The course is particularly designed with software development and computational science roles in mind, but as computing has become so important to so many different fields, it allows the flexibility to take a number of units from other disciplines if students choose to.

Beyond these core units, students are expected to take at least one Major.

In the Software Development major, students study topics such as artificial intelligence, functional programming, development for the modern web, mobile development, and interaction design.

In the Data Science major, students learn topics that are of particular relevance to applying computing to science. This includes statistical machine learning, distributed computing, and computational science.

Students can take both majors, or they can take a single major and complete their degree with their own customised set of additional units. The major or majors completed will appear on the academic record and testamur.

Students who complete the double degree Bachelor of Computer Science/LLB also find employment in banking, management and the diplomatic service.
