Study computer science at Griffith
Griffith is ranked in the top 76 - 100 for Computer Science in the world by Academic Ranking of World Universities 2020.Our computer science degree 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.

Bachelor of Engineering (Honours)/Bachelor of Computer Science
Jake has always enjoyed playing with electricity, computers and maths, and chose Griffith because the combination was a unique offering on the coast. 'The combination of my degrees is really fun. I'd definitely like to work with maths and sparks, most likely in some large-scale agricultural plant,' he says.
Classrooms that reflect the workplace
Creating new ways to enhance student learning
Our new Engineering, Technology and Aviation building at Nathan is a space for innovation and collaboration. With the latest in hands-on technology, the building offers engineering, IT and aviation students the opportunity to learn in spaces designed to reflect the workplace.
Jobs in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) are growing significantly faster than other occupations*
As a graduate, you'll be prepared for jobs such as a software developer, computer programmer, web and mobile applications developer, data scientist, software engineer, systems analyst, games developer, software systems architect and computer science researcher.
Membership is currently being sought for the Australian Computer Society. You may also be eligible for membership in international professional bodies such as the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Computer Society and the Association for Computing Machinery.
