The prevalence of digital devices, the ongoing threat of cybercrime and digital espionage present us with new challenges that mean software developers and computer scientists need to have a deeper understanding of the online environment than ever before. 

Being able to design, analyse and implement software systems in large organisations requires a careful combination of traditional IT skills and modern design thinking. That’s exactly what we offer in our computer science and programming courses.

Delve into a range of complex topics as you learn computer science such as algorithms, computer systems, cybersecurity, data science, games development, network design and software development. 

Software and IT form part of the fabric of modern society. You’ll finish your computer science degree with the skills to play a critical part in it.

    Engineering a world of opportunities

    Robotics and mechatronics, and computer science student Matt shares his Swinburne experiences of building LEGO robots, learning to ski and changing lives in India. “I tried so many things in my first year and I haven’t regretted anything. There’s so many events on all the time at Swinburne, and it’s just so easy to meet new people,” Matt says.
