Study plan and program details

The Master of Computing is a 2-year full-time (or equivalent part-time) degree with two target audiences: graduates without a computing background who wish to acquire a solid knowledge of computing, and graduates with a computing or information technology background who wish to broaden and deepen or refresh their knowledge. The program is professionally accredited by the Australian Computer Society. 

Master of Computing 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.

Students with a computing or information technology Bachelor degree or Graduate Diploma may receive up to 48 units of credit allowing them to complete the program in less than the usual 2-year time frame.

On completion of 48 units, students may exit with a Graduate Diploma of Computing. 

Students completing the Master of Computing with a GPA greater than 6 may transfer to the Master of Computing (Advanced) with up to 48 units of credit.
