The Bachelor of Computer Science  at University of New England is particularly designed with software development and computational science roles in mind, but as computing has become so important to so many different fields, it allows the flexibility to take a number of units from other disciplines if students choose to.

About

The Bachelor of Computer Science  at University of New England  teaches students the strong programming, technical, mathematical, and problem-solving skills that they will need in their careers.

The course includes a core of units that gives all our students a solid programming, mathematical, and software engineering background. From the core units, students will learn multiple programming languages as well as the modern collaborative tools and practices that software teams use to design, develop and deliver software that solves problems for their users.

 They will also take a team capstone project, in which they must develop solutions to real world computing problems drawn from community organisations and industry.

Beyond these core units, students are expected to take at least one Major.

In the Software Development major, students study topics such as artificial intelligence, functional programming, development for the modern web, mobile development, and interaction design.

In the Data Science major, students learn topics that are of particular relevance to applying computing to science. This includes statistical machine learning, distributed computing, and computational science.

Students can take both majors, or they can take a single major and complete their degree with their own customised set of additional units. The major or majors completed will appear on the academic record and testamur.

Career Opportunities

Examples include software design and development; web and mobile development; scientific technology; and technology careers in banking and corporate sectors.

Students who complete the double degree BCompSc/LLB also find employment in banking, management and the diplomatic service.
