What will I learn?

With so many options to choose from, the Bachelor of Science degree (BSc) is your opportunity to create a good foundation for your study in the Earth, Chemical, Computational, Human, Life, Mathematical and Physical Sciences.

If you have a mind for science and you’re keen to keep your options open, then the BSc is the degree for you. With many undergraduate majors in a wide range of subject areas, the BSc will allow you to incorporate different areas of interest and expertise. As well as strongly emphasising transferable skills to improve your employment opportunities, this programme will expose you to cutting-edge technologies and provide a gateway to independent research. Throughout your undergraduate degree you’ll be taught by knowledgeable scientists, many of whom are major contributors in their field.

Computer technology, it seems, is everywhere in today’s world. It has become an ever-growing part of human life, affecting many aspects of a person’s day. Computer scientists have an impact on how our society advances by developing and maintaining these systems: whether it be for our home, work, learning or entertainment environments.

We’ll cover:

  • How information is stored in computers (data structures and management)
  • How computers are told what to do (algorithms and programming languages)
  • How systems work (computer architecture and system software)
  • How computers are connected (data communications, networks and hypermedia
  • Some ways that computers can be used (applications)
  • What computers can do, and their limitations (computability and complexity theory).

If you’re interested in a relevant and dynamic field of study, and working in an industry where there is a real demand for workers, then Computer Science is for you.

Where can Computer Science take you?

Computer Science graduates can find careers in an ever-widening variety of industries and roles. Here’s a selection:

  • Business analyst
  • Front end developer
  • Information architect
  • Network engineer
  • Programmer
  • UX developer
  • Web and web scripting developer
