Computer Science and Engineering


The discipline of Computer Science and Engineering at UNSW does not teach the details of the latest technology so students will have the latest in-demand skills. With the speed of industry changes, such skills will soon be out-of-date, so we believe that a much better approach is to teach students the foundations of computer science and engineering - principles that will allow students to adapt to the inevitable changes in technology. There is considerable emphasis on developing practical skills on top of the foundations using leading-edge technologies.

Topics covered in this discipline are selected from the following research areas:

• Artificial Intelligence
• Database
• Embedded and Operating Systems
• Networks
• Programming Languages
• Service Oriented Computing
• Software Engineering
• Theory
