The Melbourne campus offers a pathway into degrees for international pathway students only. For the equivalent version for both domestic and international students at the Adelaide, North Terrace campus visit Master of Computing and Innovation.
A competitive edge in computing
Information technology (IT) professionals are faced with new challenges every day. Technical computer science skills are no longer all that’s needed to get the job done.
Our Master of Computing and Innovation is designed to build the communication, project management and innovation skills needed to thrive in a growing industry.
This degree is available to international students only.
What will you do?
- Undertake a specialised introductory IT program in your first semester.
- Learn C++ language and programming.
- Understand fundamental data structures and computer systems.
- Benefit from the guidance and mentorship of highly experienced, award-winning educators and world-leading researchers.
- Learn to design and construct large software systems.
- Build management and innovation skills through core courses.
- Apply your learning in a significant project.
This degree will still be invaluable if you already have computer science qualifications. We’ll simply vary your program to reflect your existing knowledge.
Students will commence their pathway studies as a University of Adelaide College student undertaking a Pre-Master's Program. On successful completion of the Pre-master's program, student will receive credit for subjects and will move into the second trimester of the University of Adelaide Master of Computing and Innovation.
Where could it take you?
You’ll graduate ready to take on a wide range of IT-based roles. You could be a computer scientist, web developer or tech entrepreneur. You might manage IT contracts and projects in the government sector. Perhaps you’ll work in marketing, selling exciting new IT products to the public.
Note: After completing the equivalent of a major in computer science, you’ll be eligible to apply for entry into our Master of Computer Science or Master of Software Engineering. Depending on your prior study, this major may take up to 2 years to complete.

Example Study Plan
I chose to study a Masters in Petroleum Engineering at the University of Adelaide because the ASP (Australian School of Petroleum) is located on campus. The different programs content at the ASP are well balanced on important aspects like academia, government and industry and in my case, the coursework option was a better and more convenient choice, given that I already have work experience. On the other hand, there is significant research activity going on at the ASP, which attracts really high calibre teaching staff from Australia and overseas as well.
