Objectives:
The course has been designed to provide graduates with: * a strong foundation in both the theoretical and the practical aspects of computer science; * an understanding of professional and ethical responsibilities and a commitment to them; * well developed written and oral communication skills; * an awareness of social, economic and environmental aspects of computer science; * the ability to work professionally as an individual and as a member of multi-disciplinary teams; * an understanding of the need to undertake lifelong learning and the capacity to do so; and * preparation for future management roles as professional scientists. Learning outcomes On completion of the award, students will be able to: * competently use professional skills and knowledge in the systematic development of complex computer-based systems; * apply their skills and knowledge in a professionally responsible manner; * communicate effectively with other computer scientists and the wider community using a wide range of communication technologies; * work professionally as an individual and in a team; * develop computer-based solutions appropriate to the social, political, economic and environmental contexts in which they are applied; * engage in the process of continuing learning needed to retain the necessary level of professional skills and knowledge in the area of computer science; and * contribute successfully to project management.
Entry Requirements:
Prerequisites: Mathematical Methods or Mathematical Studies (SACE Stage 2 or equivalent) You can qualify for undergraduate courses through: * year 12 qualifications * mature age entry (STAT) * TAFE/VET qualifications * higher education transfers. Flinders also offers a range of special access schemes.
Award:
Bachelor of Computer Science
Course Description:
The Bachelor of Computer Science provides a strong theoretical understanding and practical experience in the design of efficient reliable software to meet industry requirements, and of the hardware on which that software runs.

You will:

    * gain skills in the core computing technologies, and knowledge of general computing and introductory programming
    * develop your expertise in programming and software development
    * be introduced to key facets of computer systems.

Throughout, you will have the opportunity to participate in group projects and attend guest lectures by computing and information technology professionals.

There is a strong emphasis both on the fundamentals of computing and on practical skills and teamwork.

What is Computer Science?

Computer Science is the study and creation of computational systems, and includes specialised areas such as operating systems, networks, databases, graphics, data security and artificial intelligence.

Computing has become vital to all areas of science and technology. It also plays an increasingly important role in commercial and social life.
Why study Computer Science at Flinders?

    * We have a strong area of expertise in computer science.

    * Our Computer Scientists work with other professionals in solving real world problems. Eg they work with Engineers investigating areas such as Computer Architecture, Embedded Systems and Image Processing.
