Selected major: Data Science

Learn the statistical methods and tools needed to manage big data sets and the visualisation techniques needed to represent and understand that data.

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, in the units Software Engineering Project A and B (SWE40001 and SWE40002), you’ll team up with other students to work on a real project briefed to you by an industry or community partner.
