Overview

Bachelor of Computer Science

Bachelor of Computer Science includes a core of subjects that will give you a solid programming, mathematical, and software engineering background. 

From these units, you will learn multiple programming languages and the leading collaborative tools and practices software teams design, develop and deliver software that solves problems for their users.

You will also participate in a team project where you will have the opportunity to develop solutions to real-world computing problems drawn from industry and community organisations.

 

You can choose to study either one or both two majors at the University of New England:

  • Software Development - You will study topics including artificial intelligence, functional programming, development for the modern web, mobile development, and interaction design.
  • Data Science - You will learn topics relevant to applying computing to science. This includes statistical machine learning, distributed computing, and computational science.

 

Suppose you elect to take a single major. In that case, you can complete your degree with your choice of additional units from within the Bachelor of Computer Science or other degrees, depending on your interests and career aspirations.

You can also participate in the overseas exchange program, allowing you to study at one of the international partner universities for one trimester and count towards your degree.

 

You will have the opportunity to:

  • Build a solid foundation in critical thinking, communication, problem solving, resilience, flexibility, perseverance and research skills — highly demanded by many employers.
  • Structure your degree to focus purely on software development and data science by taking both majors. Alternatively, you can study a single major, allowing you to choose from a wide range of elective units from areas as diverse as business, biology, communications, psychology, or broader maths and science topics, to name just a few, giving you the flexibility to tailor your degree to meet your career goals.
  • Choose to study when it suits you. The degree is available online, allowing you to fit study around your busy lifestyle, not the other way around, no matter where you are in the world. Or join us on campus and take advantage of the small staff-student ratio and supportive environment.
  • Expand your theoretical knowledge and practical experience, and hone your problem-solving and analytical skills to future-proof your career in today’s fast-paced ICT environment.
  • Work in a small team on a capstone research project with an industry client to develop an ICT solution to a real-world issue. This is one of several opportunities you will have to work collaboratively throughout your studies.

Inherent Requirements:

Inherent requirements are the fundamental parts of a course or unit that must be met by all students. They are the abilities, knowledge and skills you need to complete the course. Students with a disability or chronic health condition can have adjustments made to enable them to meet these requirements.
