Each pathway has different admission criteria. You can also get started by studying a single course.

  • Real problems to solve

You will solve real-world problems by collaborating with a range of industry partners. All four courses in the Capstone will be co-created and co-delivered with industry partners to present you with a best-of-breed toolkit. You will be challenged to maximise your curiosity by testing the knowledge accumulated throughout the degree through distinct phases including ideation, solution development, and pitching.
