Bachelor of Engineering (Computer Systems)
Offers a synergistic combination of electronic engineering and computer science.
Computer systems engineers have a wide knowledge of digital and analog electronic systems and a detailed understanding of computer architecture, software design and hardware-software interfacing. They are involved in all aspects of computing, from the development of individual microprocessors to the design of personal, mainframe or supercomputer systems. They are also involved with digital and mixed signal circuit design, real-time and embedded system implementation and software engineering.
Students will graduate conversant in the fundamental physical sciences, computer architecture, digital electronics, data communications, interfacing, real-time and embedded systems, robotics and software development.
The course focuses on the development of knowledge and skills relevant to professional engineering practice and, along with a sound theoretical base, includes strong elements of practical problem solving, team work and project development. As a result, as well as having multiple technical and transferable skill competencies, students will graduate with strong analytical skills and the ability to lead complex projects.
Students are required to complete practicum placement(s) as part of this course.
Additional Course Information
Students will be required to undertake a minimum of 12 weeks practical work experience located in an engineering industry environment. This will normally be undertaken during a vacation period, even though it is listed as a unit for Year 4 (ENS4111).
Engineers Australia has granted accreditation to this course. Parallel accreditation status has been granted for associated double degrees.
Employment opportunities include the development and design of microcomputer systems, computer networks, complex real-time systems, high performance processors, multimedia systems, control and automation.
Computer Systems Engineer, Electronic Engineer, Embedded Systems Engineer
Students whose performance over the four years of the course is of a high standard may be awarded the Bachelor of Engineering with Honours degree.
Engineering / Business, Engineering / Laws, Engineering / Science and Engineering (Computer Systems) / Computer Science double degrees are also available in this discipline.
Applicants who do not meet the mathematics pre-requisite for this course should consider applying for the Bachelor of Technology (Electronic & Computer Systems) as a pathway.
