    Computers are changing the world, and our lives. We've been saying that for decades, and we'll keep saying it, because computing technology just keeps on advancing.

    You probably have what a few decades ago would have been called a super-computer sitting in your pocket right now.

    The Master of Computer Science will give you a broad base of high-level knowledge to keep up with these advances, with specialist skills in at least one area of knowledge systems, programming languages and distributed computing, information systems, mathematics/statistics, spatial information science or linguistics.

    In demand globally

    You can use the Master of Computer Science as a pathway to a PhD or to the workforce, where you may meet our alumni working in software design, cybersecurity, information architecture and programming.

    Take on real-world research problems

    You’ll leave the course with a major research project to feature in your CV. You'll complete an independent project in your chosen research area, supported by one of our academic experts.

    If you’d like to gain even more real-world experience, you can choose to complete an internship in a science or technology-related workplace for course credit.

    More than just technical skills

    We know that employers today are looking for more than just specialist technical capability. To round out your skill set, select from a range of high-level professional subjects, including scientific communication, modelling, simulation and more.
