The Master of Computing is a 2-year full-time (or equivalent part-time) degree with two target audiences: graduates without a computing background who wish to acquire a solid knowledge of computing, and graduates with a computing or information technology background who wish to broaden and deepen or refresh their knowledge. The program is professionally accredited by the Australian Computer Society.
Master of Computing graduates will develop a deep knowledge and understanding of professional software development and computing practices. Students have the opportunity to participate in many cutting edge courses and, depending upon their background and interests, may choose to specialise in artificial intelligence, human centred design and software development, or data science. The program culminates in a capstone project: either working in small groups with industry partners, with researchers, or in start-ups; or by undertaking a small research project supervised by an academic.
Students with a computing or information technology Bachelor degree or Graduate Diploma may receive up to 48 units of credit allowing them to complete the program in less than the usual 2-year time frame.
On completion of 48 units, students may exit with a Graduate Diploma of Computing.
Students completing the Master of Computing with a GPA greater than 6 may transfer to the Master of Computing (Advanced) with up to 48 units of credit.
Computing jobs are currently projected to be amongst the fastest growing occupations of our time - so there is no shortage of jobs. This degree can be utilised to access wider a corporate career, as well as a path to further academic undertakings.
Graduates are ideally positioned to take on challenging roles in their chosen sectors and become leaders in the ICT industry. They can work across a range of industries in a variety of roles, including Data Mining Specialist, Big Data Analyst, Human-Computer Interaction Specialist, Software Developer, Embedded systems developer, Network Architect, Systems Analyst, Computer Engineer, Advanced Software Solutions Engineer and Software Architect.
Our graduates work in many organisations including IBM, Google, Microsoft, Yahoo, Intel, Price Waterhouse Coopers, Accenture Australia, Bloomberg, National Australia Bank, Citigroup, Deloitte, Unisys and the Australian Government.
At a minimum, all applicants must meet program-specific academic/non-academic requirements, and English language requirements. Admission to most ANU programs is on a competitive basis. Therefore, meeting all admission requirements does not automatically guarantee entry.
Applicants must present a Bachelor degree or international equivalent with a minimum GPA of 5.0/7.0. Or a Bachelor degree or international equivalent with a GPA of 4.0/7.0, with at least 3 years of relevant work experience.
In line with the university's admissions policy and strategic plan, an assessment for admission may include competitively ranking applicants on the basis of specific academic achievement, English language proficiency and diversity factors.
