Trimester 1 and Trimester 2
Computer Science is a dynamic and developing field that is increasingly pervading every aspect of society. In this program you will learn the fundamental principles underpinning computer science and learn practical software technology development skills for many different platforms and applications.
You will have the choice of studying topics such as Programming Languages, Distributed Computing, Computer Architectures, Algorithms and Operating Systems, Machine Learning, Intelligent Systems, Robotics, Programming for Web, Mobile and Embedded Applications, Scientific Computing, Visualisation and Big Data Mining, and Analytics. You can choose between one of two majors and also select from a range of elective courses. In the last year of your studies, you will complete a practical project for industry or research placement providing first-hand experience of the knowledge, skills and attributes required to succeed in full-time employment.
This program is offered via full-time, part-time, on-campus and in-person mode. To be classed as full-time, students must enrol in at least three courses per trimester.
To be classed as a full-time student, you are required to enrol in a minimum number of credit points each standard study period. The minimum credit points for full-time enrolment in this program is 30 credit points.
Trimester 1 and Trimester 2 are deemed standard study periods. As Trimester 3 is a non-standard study period, continuing students moving from one year to the next will not be required to study during this trimester to be eligible for student income support.
Domestic students who commence in Trimester 3 may be eligible for student income support from the onset of study provided they are enrolled full-time in this study period.
Please refer to the Australian Government website for more details.
Students must complete a 20 credit point Work Integrated Learning (WIL) course in their final year. WIL has been designed to integrate students into the workplace through the completion of an industry-based work, which is designed to benefit both the student and the industry partner. WIL can be taken as either a Placement or team-based project. With Placement, students are placed with an industry partner where students attend their placement 2 days a week to produce the deliverable(s) for that organisation. With team project, students are assigned into a team to work on a project from an industry partner. With either choice, students use their placement or team project as a vehicle to apply what they have learned in their program and demonstrate independent and life-long learning on the job.
The inclusion of work-integrated learning in this program demonstrates Griffith's commitment to preparing its graduates for success in their working life.
Students will gain direct industry experience through the completion of the core 20 credit point Work Integrated Learning course.
This program prepares students for careers as a software developer, computer programmer, web and mobile applications developer, data scientist, systems analyst, computer games programmer, software systems architect and computer scientist.
Accreditation will be sought from the Australian Computer Society.
It is expected that graduates will be eligible to apply to join the Australian Computer Society (ACS), and the program has been designed to specifically meet level 1 accreditation. Students and graduates can also join the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) and the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE).
These fees are only applicable to domestic students who are not Commonwealth supported including:
