Study plan and program details

The Master of Computing (Advanced) is a 2- year full-time (or equivalent part-time) degree targeting students who wish to enter industry in an R&D or leadership role or who wish to pursue a PhD. 

Master of Computing (Advanced) graduates will deepen their existing 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, are likely to choose to specialise in artificial intelligence, human centred design and software development, or data science. The program culminates in a capstone individual research project requiring students to complete a substantial research thesis.

Students may be awarded up to 48 units of credit. The number of units of credit a student receives will be determined on a case by case basis and will be influenced by their background and focus of their earlier studies.
