Type of institution: University/Higher Education Institution
This program teaches students the strong programming, technical, mathematical, and problem-solving skills that they will need in their careers. The course is particularly designed with software development and computational science roles in mind, but as computing has become so important to so many different fields, it allows the flexibility to take a number of units from other disciplines if students choose to. The course includes a core of units that gives all our students a solid programming, mathematical, and software engineering background. From the core units, students will learn multiple programming languages as well as the modern collaborative tools and practices that software teams use to design, develop and deliver software that solves problems for their users. They will also take a team capstone project, in which they must develop solutions to real world computing problems drawn from community organisations and industry.
144 credit points (equivalent to 24 standard units) including core units, one or two Majors, and a choice of listed and elective units.
- Data Science
- Software development.
