Study computer science at Griffith
The Computer Science program is Queensland's premiere degree for individuals focused on careers in the dynamic software development and software engineering sector. It is designed to prepare you to work on the cutting edge of technology, creating the future rather than just applying existing information technology solutions to business needs or building websites.
As a student, you will learn the fundamental principles underpinning computer science and gain practical problem solving and market relevant software development skills for many different platforms and applications. You will learn about computer hardware and computer architecture, at least five of widely used programming languages, software design and architecture, intelligent systems and machine learning, operating systems, distributed computing, data management and web and mobile technologies. You will be able to do one or both of the two available majors; Software Engineering and Data Science and Artificial Intelligence. In addition to this students will be able to take elective courses from the Bachelor of Information Technology.
In the final year of your degree, 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.

Griffith Information Technology graduate
An IT degree from Griffith was the start of an amazing journey for Elliot Nash. Soon after graduating, Elliot landed a programmer analyst role with a Gold Coast tourism operator with a focus on online tourism. This role led him to the realisation that his interest lay in combining his technical skills with business strategy. Elliot returned to Griffith to study an MBA.
Following his further studies, Elliot's qualifications and technical skills brought his profile to the attention of Amazon recruiters. It was not long before he was on his way to Seattle to take on the role of Technical Program Manager and embracing a new life in the US.
'My time at Griffith was extremely valuable in getting me where I am today. At Griffith, they teach the importance of leadership, vision, lifelong learning and mission, and at Amazon they really live and breathe those principles'.
