We believe a modern approach to the analysis, design and implementation of large-scale systems is essential for a career in software development. That’s why we offer computer science at Swinburne.
We offer a focus on application development involving mobile devices and web-based systems, with an emphasis on the design and implementation of effective human–computer interfaces. It’s just a matter of choosing the specialisation that suits your future: cybersecurity, internet of things or software development.
The Bachelor of Computer Science involves the use of the most up-to-date technology and methods, and includes a major emphasis on software development. The course is oriented towards applications in areas such as defence, aerospace and medicine, where complex software plays a major role and often of a safety-critical nature; as well as in businesses that require extensive computer support, such as banking and manufacturing.
The indicative course fees shown here applies to students studying on-campus in Malaysia for the relevant year only. They are based on a standard study load per year. However, please note that fees are assessed according to a student’s study load in each semester, and variation to study load will result in an adjustment to tuition fees. All fees are subject to annual review and may be adjusted.

For the completion of the Bachelor of Computer Science, students are required to complete a total of 24 units (300 credit points) consisting of:
Learn how to architect big systems, write phone and tablet apps and produce software that is better than industry standard. Then scale your applications up to the cloud for hacker-proof, robust and reliable software applications.
Units of Study
Learn the fundamentals of encryption systems, access control, the internet and get
into the minds of malicious hackers and cyber-criminals. Learn their tricks and how to defeat them.
Units of Study
This major invites students to gain the core programming skills needed to program devices and develop software solutions. Learn to problem-solve through analysing data from internet-connected devices.
Units of Study
Students in Computer Science may opt for Minor in Big Data Analytics:
Graduates typically find employment in organisations engaged in medium- to large-scale software development. Initially graduates are usually employed in technical areas such as programming and systems analysis and design, internet systems development. They are well-prepared for progression into project leadership and management positions as their experience develops.
This degree is accredited with the Australian Computer Society at the professional level.
At Swinburne scholarships are about providing opportunity, promoting equity and recognising excellence and achievement. Scholarships are available for both commencing and current students.
