We believe a modern approach to the analysis, design and implementation of large-scale systems is essential for a career in software development. That’s why we offer computer science at Swinburne.

We offer a focus on application development involving mobile devices and web-based systems, with an emphasis on the design and implementation of effective human–computer interfaces. It’s just a matter of choosing the specialisation that suits your future: cybersecurity, internet of things or software development.

The Bachelor of Computer Science involves the use of the most up-to-date technology and methods, and includes a major emphasis on software development. The course is oriented towards applications in areas such as defence,  aerospace and medicine, where complex software plays a major role and often of a safety-critical nature; as well as in businesses that require extensive computer support, such as banking and manufacturing.

SUBJECTS

Students who successfully complete this course will be able to:

  1. apply a broad and coherent knowledge of computer science and software development in diverse contexts and domains using critical thinking and judgment
  2. apply appropriate methods and contemporary tools to the scoping, analysis, design, construction, verification and operation of software systems
  3. communicate proficiently to a variety of audiences, function as an effective member or leader of a team, and use the basic tools and practices of project management within project work
  4. demonstrate professionalism, integrity, ethical conduct, professional accountability and an awareness of professional practice in a global context
  5. apply problem analysis and decision-making methodologies to identify, design and implement solutions to industry relevant problems with intellectual independence
  6. reflect on personal performance, learning, and self-management processes as a means of continued professional development and lifelong learning.
