Courses Overview

What will I learn?
Why study the Master of Computer Science at UNE?
Information and computing technology affects all aspects of modern life and there is a worldwide shortage of ICT professionals. Its applications now include not only commerce and science, but also health, education, engineering, transport, government, entertainment, sport, and social networking. It has become so complex that only well-educated professionals are capable of developing and applying ICT systems in modern organisations. Even professionals in other disciplines need a sound understanding of ICT to perform their own jobs efficiently and effectively.
Emphasis is placed upon the structured design of algorithms for computer-based implementations of real-life tasks. The interactive execution, analysis and use of programs are discussed together with advanced algorithmic designs and programming techniques; informal notions of program specification and verification; a high-level description of the abstract architecture of the von Neumann machine; numerical and non-numerical applications; and social issues.
This course provides a comprehensive, modern postgraduate education in the principles and practice of ICT together with the opportunity to gain enhanced knowledge and skills in research.
Course Aims
The Master of Computer Science is designed for computer science/information technology practitioners. The aim of the course is to enable students to enhance their competencies in a range of areas critical to computer science/information technology; to develop knowledge of research principles and methods; and to apply knowledge and skills to plan and execute a substantial research-based project. The course will enable students to attain the theoretical knowledge, problem solving and analytical skills and the practical experience needed to be an effective computer science/information technology practitioner.
Career Opportunities
ICT graduates are in high demand and career options include a wide variety of positions in the IT industry, including business intelligence expert, e-business development, information systems manager, IT project manager, software architect, software quality/testing specialist and systems analyst.
