The Faculty of Computing Science

A degree in Computing Science from Griffith College gives you the opportunity to take advantage of the continued high demand for skilled IT professionals.

Computing Science is the study of computers, their possibilities, their use, their design and their limitations. It is about using computers to solve interesting and challenging problems. It encompasses the systematic design of reliable and efficient computer programmes, information processing systems, computer architecture, and intercommunication networks.

“Whether you want to uncover the secrets of the universe, or you want to pursue a career in the 21st century, computer programming is an essential skill to learn.”

Stephen Hawking, theoretical physicist, cosmologist, and author
