At UON we train engineers capable of solving the world’s greatest challenges. As a computer engineer you may develop a precision agriculture system to optimise food production and minimise the use of chemicals in farming.
You might develop breakthrough data transfer technology for remote access to medical services. Or, you could design a computer system that creates greater efficiency in wind turbine energy production.
What is computer engineering?
Computer engineers use digital and computing technologies to solve problems in industrial systems and in areas such as information processing, data transfer, communications, commerce and travel.
They combine creativity with technology to develop both hardware and software for electronic and microprocessor-based systems.
Why study with us?
- Real-world insights: connect with industry through projects, guest lecturers, and mentoring.
- Hands-on practical experience: build vital professional networks and hands-on industry experience with 12 weeks of professional practice throughout your degree.
- Travel the world with international recognition through Engineers Australia. You can even start while you’re studying with international exchanges and scholarships available.
Computer engineers are an essential part of wide range of industries. They may find employment in computer design and development, instrumentation and control, ICT infrastructure, defence applications, healthcare systems and communication networks/internet development.
Computer engineering is flexible and diverse. You may prefer hands-on fieldwork, design and development, or a leadership role managing people and projects. Typical positions include:
- information and communications technologist
- computer systems specialist
- web developer
- information technology manager
