This course will enable computer science students to develop competencies expected of professionals working in business, government or the broader community. The course coordinator will maintain a list of available internship opportunities for which students can apply. A holistic selection process will be used to select the best applicant for each opportunity. Students can also propose internships, but these will always be established following negotiations between the ANU and potential host organisations, and then offered to students along with other opportunities.

Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:

  1. Demonstrate a personal commitment to ethical behaviour, competent practice, meeting legal and regulatory requirements, taking responsibility for their own work and acknowledging the work of others.
  2. Demonstrate a commitment to safety and sustainability, appropriate engagement with relevant stakeholders, and identify, assess and manage risk.
  3. Communicate effectively and work productively in a multi-disciplinary team, using initiative and sound judgement, to achieve defined workplace objectives.
  4. Apply their knowledge and skills in computer science to explore and critically analyse a real-world problem; using creativity and innovation, identify and critically evaluate potential solutions to the problem; choose and implement a particular solution; and critically evaluate and analyse the outcomes and impact of this solution.
