Bachelor of Computer Science

Monash University

Computer scientists and their creations are everywhere. They drive everything from search engines to daily weather reports, animation, cybersecurity and scientific discoveries, pushing developments that use and transform information. In this program students will learn to think creatively and analytically, from some of the world's best academics in the field. They will graduate with the skills to design algorithms (instructions for computers) and data structures (information storage), creating software that solves real-world problems. Students can build expertise through a specialisation in either Advanced Computer Science, or in the exciting new field of Data Science, exploiting the massive datasets of the Information Age.
