Major overview


Computing involves the design, analysis and implementation of complex systems supporting computer networks, databases and web services. These technologies are applied across the domains of health, safety, community, businesses and education, and are realised through the building of algorithms and apps.

The Computing major is designed for technically focused students who want to build strong professional capabilities in both programming and the development of digital material. You will build advanced technical skills in the areas of media computation, data manipulation and visualisation, interaction design and usability.

IT underlies scientific discoveries, medical breakthroughs, and continuous innovation in products and services. It is central to many aspects of modern life. Career pathways are varied and plentiful in the 21st century where data drives business and information is everything.
