What will I learn?

This dual program is your ticket to a role building the next generation of leading-edge technologies with major companies across the globe.

By studying the dual program, you'll obtain two sought-after qualifications in less time than studying the programs separately. The skills and knowledge you'll develop through the computer science program will complement your engineering expertise, and together they'll allow you to carve out a career in the high-tech industries of the future.

UQ's engineering program offers the largest choice of engineering disciplines in Queensland, with 5 core specialisations and 14 majors to choose from. The flexible curriculum will equip you to work in both established and newly emerging areas of engineering.

You'll benefit from hands-on experiences across all aspects of engineering, more study options for greater career opportunities, and direct contact with industry – your future employers – threaded throughout your degree.

Computer science combines the theoretical studies of algorithms and data structures with the practical challenges of implementing them in hardware and software systems. Through this program you'll develop the strong analytical, logical and development skills necessary to advance computing and its applications. You can specialise in cyber security, data science, machine learning, programming languages or scientific computing.

You'll graduate with qualifications that are highly valued and in demand, ready for an exciting career in leading-edge technology.

Mining Engineering

Our new approach to mining engineering education gives you flexible options.

You'll study the fundamentals of mining engineering as a major in civil, mechanical, or mechatronic engineering. This will give you the foundational knowledge of mining engineering and more career opportunities in the resource sector.

The new major also enables multi-sector opportunities in the resources sector, as well as the mining, equipment, technology and services (METS) sectors. You’ll graduate with more career opportunities and industry benefits, with a more diverse pool of engineers with mining engineering education joining the industry.
