About this course

This program complements the field of Computer Systems Engineering and allows undergraduate electrical engineering graduates to concentrate on advanced software applications rather than hardware. Students may also wish to investigate other masters programs in Information Technology and Information Environments. This program consists of an extensive menu of intermediate and advanced level courses. Job opportunities are widespread, as society comes to rely more and more on computer technology.

Employment opportunities:

Graduates find work in large multinational companies; state and federal government departments; and in many small, specialised and emerging companies.

Study options:

Graduates will have the opportunity to progress to the following programs:

  • Master of Philosophy
  • Doctor of Philosophy

Professional memberships:

Graduates may be eligible for membership with the following professional bodies:

  • Australian Computer Society

While this degree may be accredited by an official industry accreditation body in Australia, completion of the degree may not result in graduates receiving automatic accreditation. Students can contact the relevant registration body for details of any conditions for accreditation.
