Bachelor of Computer Science

Online Course Information

Deakin’s Bachelor of Computer Science will equip you with the knowledge and practical skills required to design and develop innovative software solutions to complex information and technology problems faced by communities, businesses and industries.

The course is ideally suited to those who are passionate about solving problems and creating solutions, curious about how something works, rather than simply what it does and interested in working at the leading edge of technology innovation and development.

This course provides a comprehensive and systematic study of computer systems and networks, data management and information processes, human computer interaction, programming and software development, computing theory, mathematical methods, and algorithm design and analysis.

As a student you’ll gain hands-on experience and a practical understanding of theory through learning activities in our modern computing laboratories, working with the latest hardware and software technologies alongside our internationally recognised academic staff. Our world-class research programs in computer science feed directly into our classrooms, meaning that you’ll be learning at the cutting edge of industry expectations and capabilities.

Deakin’s Bachelor of Computer Science has been accredited by the Australian Computer Society (ACS), ensuring a high quality of education and providing you with international recognition as an ICT industry professional.

Computer science graduates are in high demand in Australia and internationally and find employment in a variety of roles, such as data scientist, software developer, software engineer, systems or network administrator, database administrator or developer, solutions architect, systems analyst, or project manager. Computer scientists also work in specialist research and development roles, in both public and private organisations.

Units in the course may include assessment hurdle requirements.


* Price for the online Bachelor of Computer Science is based on Commonwealth Supported Place (HECS).
