Summary

A computer science degree with a difference

Web and application development, augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) development, game development and emerging technologies are some of the biggest industries worldwide today.

Traditional computer science degrees have focused solely on software engineering, programming and mathematics and skip many of the skills essential in real-world development.

Developed in conjunction with industry, the Bachelor of Creative Software is a transdisciplinary programme bringing computer science, programming, art and design, social science and business knowledge together with project management so students develop the knowledge and skills they need to participate in a real-world team.

Project-based learning

This programme is heavily focused on project-based learning so you graduate with real-world skills. Over 50% of course time is dedicated to tutor-led programming, with an additional 15% orientated around group projects.

Commercially-relevant projects are developed in a studio-like environment and, with a focus on innovation and entrepreneurship, you'll finish your degree ready to carve your own path in a computational job within the creative, business or science sector.
