Computer science provides solutions to the ever-increasing information challenges in the modern world. Industry needs people who can extract and analyse information from the massive datasets generated by engineering processes and devices. Big data is the new challenge and opportunity in engineering practice across industries from construction and manufacturing, to transport and the energy sector.
In this double degree course, you will:
gain theoretical and practical skills to solve engineering problems, by designing and building more efficient software or by exploiting big data.
be able to pair electrical and computer systems engineering or software engineering with computer science, to create innovative solutions at either the hardware or software ends of the IT spectrum.
This course requires students to complete a total of 420 hours of continuous professional development, in order to graduate. This professional development may be in the form of 12 weeks of relevant vacation employment or an equivalent combination of approved professional development and/or engineering employment, taken throughout the duration of the course. Students are required to submit a series of reflections on their experience, with particular reference to development of each of the key Engineers Australia Stage 1 competencies.
