Master of Computing


CRICOS course code: 078940M
Level of study: Postgraduate

The Master of Computing is a 2-year full-time (or equivalent part-time) degree with two target audiences: graduates without a computing background who wish to acquire a solid knowledge of computing, and graduates with a computing or information technology background who wish to broaden and deepen or refresh their knowledge. The program is professionally accredited by the Australian Computer Society.
Master of Computing graduates will develop a deep knowledge and understanding of professional software development and computing practices. Students have the opportunity to participate in many cutting edge courses and, depending upon their background and interests, may choose to specialize in artificial intelligence, human centered design and software development, or data science. The program culminates in a capstone project: either working in small groups with industry partners, with researchers, or in start-ups; or by undertaking a small research project supervised by an academic.
Students with a computing or information technology Bachelor degree or Graduate Diploma may receive up to 48 units of credit allowing them to complete the program in less than the usual 2-year time frame.
On completion of 48 units, students may exit with a Graduate Diploma of Computing.
Students completing the Master of Computing with a GPA greater than 6 may transfer to the Master of Computing (Advanced) with up to 48 units of credit.
Employment Opportunities
Computing jobs are currently projected to be amongst the fastest growing occupations of our time – so there is no shortage of jobs. This degree can be utilized to access wider a corporate career, as well as a path to further academic undertakings.
