The Master of Computing (Advanced) is a 2- year full-time (or equivalent part-time) degree targeting students who wish to enter industry in an R&D or leadership role or who wish to pursue a PhD.
Master of Computing (Advanced) graduates will deepen their existing 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, are likely to choose to specialise in artificial intelligence, human centred design and software development, or data science. The program culminates in a capstone individual research project requiring students to complete a substantial research thesis.
Students may be awarded up to 48 units of credit. The number of units of credit a student receives will be determined on a case by case basis and will be influenced by their background and focus of their earlier studies.
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 study such as a PhD.
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, as well as in academia.
It is hoped that this degree will receive professional accreditation with the Australian Computer Society from 2019. Prior to accreditation, students who require ACS professional accreditation should undertake the Master of Computing instead.
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 6.0/7.0. Or a Bachelor degree or international equivalent with a GPA of 5.0/7.0, with at least 5 years of relevant work experience.
Cognate Disciplines: Computer Science, Software Engineering. Prospective students with other computing degrees, such as Information Technology or Science (with a major in computing), will be considered on a case by case basis.
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.
