Deakin’s Bachelor of Computer Science will equip you with the knowledge and practical skills required to design and develop innovative software solutions to complex information and technology problems faced by communities, businesses and industries.
The course is ideally suited to those who are passionate about solving problems and creating solutions, curious about how something works, rather than simply what it does and interested in working at the leading edge of technology innovation and development.
This course provides a comprehensive and systematic study of computer systems and networks, data management and information processes, human computer interaction, programming and software development, computing theory, mathematical methods, and algorithm design and analysis.
As a student you’ll gain hands-on experience and a practical understanding of theory through learning activities in our modern computing laboratories, working with the latest hardware and software technologies alongside our internationally recognised academic staff. Our world-class research programs in computer science feed directly into our classrooms, meaning that you’ll be learning at the cutting edge of industry expectations and capabilities.
