Gain the fundamentals to specialise in your Computer Engineering area of choice
Computer Science and Software Engineering are some of the fastest growing areas in education and professional demand. You’ll focus on computing and mathematics design and techniques, giving you the fundamentals to specialise in your area of choice. It could be bioinformatics, computer engineering, software engineering or computer science – it all depends on your professional goals.
The field of computer science and software engineering has completely transformed. Consider the evolution of computers, previously one computer would take up an entire room, now we have high tech computing in the palm of our hand (and even on our wrists) with smart phones. Things are moving fast. This degree will set you up to work with products that are used by millions of people every day. You might choose to do a research thesis, experimenting with making new discoveries in the field.
Our Computer Science and Software Engineering degrees are accredited by Engineers Australia and the Australian Computing Society. Our computing programs are some of the most hands on in Australia and abroad. Rather than teach computer science and software engineering, we want you to be the designers of new technology. That’s why we partner with companies like Data61, a leading digital research network, researching things like artificial intelligence, programming languages and service-oriented computing.
In the last five years, Software and Applications Programmer roles have grown from 80,200 in 2014 to 135,000 in 2019, according to Jobs Outlook. There’s a great deal of opportunity for an engineer with computer science and software skills, such as in professional, scientific and technical services, financial and insurance services, or public administration and safety.
Career options include:
Our specialised degree, the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Software Engineering) will provide you with strong skills and knowledge to enter the Computer Science and Software Engineering industry.
We offer a range of engineering program specialisations that can be undertaken in our Engineers Australia accredited degrees. You can study Computer Science and Software Engineering in the following undergraduate degrees/compatible degrees:
Computer Hardware Engineers design and develop computer systems as well as the hardware elements. It’s how we maintain our vast networks of computer technology and are able to develop of new efficient technology like smart watches and smart phones that fold or bend.
Bioinformatics combines computer science, big data and life science to provide better solutions to experts working with and managing huge volumes of genetic information.
Data Science is a multidisciplinary field of study that blends mathematical methods, statistics, computing, business decisions and communication. Data Science untangles the complex, interwoven webs of data using advanced technical and mathematical skills to deliver actionable insights for organisations.
