Why computing could be the right choice for you

Learn from leaders within many different computing specialties and gain both practical and theoretical skills across computing industries.

1. Experience an original approach to computing degrees

New for 2018, the Bachelor of Advanced Computing is set to be Australia’s most innovative IT degree. Get an advanced skillset across computing, IT and business transformation while combining them with your choice of more than 100 cross-disciplinary majors in areas such as music, commerce, science and the arts. You’ll have the choice to graduate after three years with the Bachelor of Computing or continue to complete advanced professional and research skills in your fourth year.

2. We put the I & T in innovation

Innovation isn’t just a buzz word for us; it’s what drives and motivates us. If you have the same passion, our Sydney Accelerator Network: IT will help make your ideas a reality. When you study computing at the University of Sydney, you have the chance to create your own startup business and finesse your entrepreneurial skills with networking and collaboration opportunities, educator support, and training from those who’ve already experienced success.

3. Learning beyond lectures: we’re about getting hands-on

Your undergraduate computing degree gives you the chance to work on a capstone project partnering with companies like Atlassian, Oracle and Data61/CSIRO to solve their business problems. Past projects have included a chat interface for psychologists to assist with patient responses using artificial intelligence data, and an e-commerce website which accepts payments in digi.cash (a digital currency).

4. Engage with Australia’s IT Gurus

Our experts are world leaders working on truly inspirational concepts. Professor Dacheng Tao’s work in Artificial Intelligence (AI) has the potential to revolutionise the way we work and live. Associate Professor Fabio Ramos is an authority on robotics, looking at machines that can think for themselves such as autonomous cars that can self-drive. This is just a snapshot of the ground-breaking work our people do that you can learn more about when you study with us.
