The Bachelor of Computer Science involves the use of the most up-to-date technology and methods, and includes a major emphasis on software development. The course is oriented towards applications in areas such as defence, aerospace and medicine, where complex software plays a major role and often of a safety-critical nature; as well as in businesses that require extensive computer support, such as banking and manufacturing.

I chose Swinburne for its prestigious IT courses, which have now opened up a broad range of possibilities for my future. I plan to complete a semester at one of Swinburne’s partner universities in Sweden, then apply for an Industry-Based Learning placement the following year.
Bachelor of Computer Science
Some of my highlights have been volunteering with the student support program; helping with some astrophysics research (a great strength of Swinburne’s); and finding work teaching tutorials and giving guest lectures. Definitely take the opportunity to do industry placements, especially in the middle of your course.
