The Computing program at the Australian National University 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 specialise in artificial intelligence, human centred 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.
- Professionally apply systematic computing approaches to address complex, multi-disciplinary real-world computing problems in a variety of domains.
- Synthesise and proficiently apply advanced, integrated technical knowledge from their specialisation and other elective areas of study and the underpinning sciences and computational methods.
- Identify and critically evaluate current developments and emerging trends within their specialization and other elective areas of study.
- Understand the contextual factors that influence professional computing practice, and identify the potential societal, ethical, and environmental impact of computing activities.
- Communicate effectively with colleagues, other computing professionals and the broader community employing a range of communication media and tools.
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 utilised to access wider a corporate career, as well as a path to further academic undertakings.
Graduates are ideally positioned to take on challenging roles in their chosen sectors and become leaders in the ICT industry. They can work across a range of industries in a variety of roles, including Data Mining Specialist, Big Data Analyst, Human-Computer Interaction Specialist, Software Developer, Embedded systems developer, Network Architect, Systems Analyst, Computer Engineer, Advanced Software Solutions Engineer and Software Architect.
