Information Technology is revolutionising our society, from business and health, to manufacturing and entertainment. IT underlies scientific discoveries and medical breakthroughs, helps develop innovative new products and services, and is central to many aspects of modern life.
Software engineers use an understanding of computer science, design, engineering, management, mathematics and psychology to enable team production of large software systems. You will combine mathematical, scientific and technical knowledge with creativity to tackle large-scale software design and development projects.
You will have the opportunity to work closely with IT professionals in a year-long industry project, as well as building the essential team work skills required to implement and operate software engineering solutions in industry.
The Master of Engineering (Software) will provide you with a formal qualification in software engineering at the Masters level.
The IT industry is experiencing a critical skills shortage in Australia and highly-trained graduates are in strong demand.
