Why study Computer Science?

Information and communications technology drives modern science. Students that major in computer science will study the science of computing and its application to other scientific disciplines.

The computer science major offers courses that provide a solid grounding in computational, scientific and mathematical skills. Skills such as teamwork, presentation and project management are a key component of several courses.

Employment opportunities

Science graduates with computing-focused studies offer a unique skill-set that is in demand. Career opportunities in government, university and commercial organisations include:

  • Computer science and biological sciences - Biotechnology companies now employ computing professionals in the growing area of bioinformatics
  • Systems integration - Designing and implementing complex systems based on components from different sources
  • Computer science and mathematics - Mathematics is generally applied to problems in the world via computing technology
  • Computer science and psychology - Understanding both how computers and humans work helps in building systems that integrate computers more seamlessly into people's lives, and
  • Computational science - here is growing interest in large-scale computation on large networks of conventional computers

A Science degree also provides an ideal basis for postgraduate study and research or academic careers.
