Bachelor of Computing

Our Bachelor of Computing degree will teach you the essential computing skills of troubleshooting and formulating viable solutions. Additionally, you will learn to apply theories and integrate them in real-world environments, across multiple disciplines, by presenting best practices and solutions.

Overview

You will gain sound theoretical knowledge grounded in real-world applications. Furthermore, the practical assignments and projects you will complete are congruent with daily practices in the working world, providing you with business-specific and soft skills. These skills include communication skills, customer satisfaction training, the ability to work as part of a team, and the ability to teach others.

Moreover, in the fourth year of your Bachelor of Computing, you will have the remarkable opportunity to complete an internship at a national or international company. Additionally, you will conduct academic research and present your findings in a formal dissertation.

Choose between the following specialisations:

Bachelor of Computing - Data Science Specialisation
Specialising in data science will give you in-depth knowledge of the processes and techniques used to transform data into information – an essential skill for effective decision-making in any organisation.

You will learn how to collect and organise data into large-scale data stores and warehouses, how to use mathematical and statistical analysis to develop sound business solutions based on this data, and how to present your findings in reports to stakeholders.
Bachelor of Computing - Software Engineering Specialisation

This specialisation will teach you to turn abstract ideas into practical applications that solve everyday problems.

It will allow you to specialise in a range of disciplines, including software architecture, human experience design, data protection, systems integration, and many more.

In the working world, you will typically work alongside business intelligence specialists to formulate, conceptualise and create dynamic solutions for real-world problems. You will also work closely with software developers who assist in developing these functional solutions.
