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.

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.

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 transfer to our Master of Computer Science or Master of Software Engineering. Options for converting to a graduate diploma or graduate certificate program are also available. If you’re looking to convert between programs, seek advice from the Faculty of Engineering, Computer and Mathematical Sciences, as not all courses can be counted towards the new program.

The University of Adelaide is committed to regular reviews of the courses and programs it offers to students. The University of Adelaide therefore reserves the right to discontinue or vary programs and courses without notice. Please read the important information contained in the disclaimer.
