Selected major: Cybersecurity
Learn the fundamentals of encryption systems, access control, the internet and get into the minds of malicious hackers and cyber-criminals. Learn their tricks and how to defeat them.
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.
It 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.
All our bachelor degrees include a guaranteed Work Integrated Learning opportunity, which could be a placement, internship or industry-linked project. In this degree, you'll apply your learning in six projects in professionally focused, industry-linked projects.

When you go to uni you want more than academic study, you want practical time on the tools. Check out the Smart Parking App some of our students created.
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.
