As the IT industry changes, product-specific skills can quickly become obsolete. The focus of our computing courses is to convey fundamental knowledge and skills to our students, to help them become life-long learners and build sustainable careers.
Our courses are based on the curricula recommendations of two respected professional IT associations: IEEE Computer Society and the Association for Computing Machinery. The courses are developed in consultation with an industry advisory board representing the IT industry, and are accredited by the Australian Computer Society.

These courses are backed by our strong research capabilities across artificial intelligence, computer graphics, database management, large-scale pattern recognition, parallel and distributed computing, and software engineering.
