Undergraduate computing, maths and technology degrees
We understand that sometimes you don't know exactly which degree you'd like to pursue, particularly with the diverse pathways offered by the study of maths, computing and technology. You may, however, know which field excites you. Use these areas of interest to narrow down your study options based on your interests and career goals.
A degree in commerce focuses on the use of maths in the study of money. In this area you will learn to help plan and model populations, interest rates or company growth with a focus on economics. Finance will see your study focus on the stock market, investments and banking. While a study of accounting centres around financial transactions and reporting. Commerce professionals are in demand globally and jobs in this area can be extremely lucrative and rewarding.
Computer systems are used for the control and information processing of automated machines. At its core, this area relies on the study of mathematics; computer and software engineering; and coding and programming. Computer Systems and Robotics is at the forefront of innovation and discovery as the world relies more and more on robots and machines to complete basic and complex tasks.
Data is increasingly cheap and ubiquitous. We are now digitising analogue content and collecting new types of data from web logs, mobile devices, sensors, instruments, and transactions. We can now also identify patterns and regularities in data of all sorts which has the potential to deepen our understanding of phenomena ranging from physical and biological systems to human social and economic behaviour. A degree in data science focuses on the study of collecting and analysing this data to make changes and advancements in almost any industry.
Information systems students learn to design computing solutions for use within business environments. They study how to build systems using web and database technologies within core business areas such as marketing, finance and human resources. Professionals in this area are asked to constantly bridge the gap between business requirements and information technology.
Information technology (IT) is all about learning to develop, build and maintain software technology systems to meet the challenges faced by business and society. IT professionals consider solutions integrating multiple products and services to meet business and organisational needs. IT professionals are essentially the project managers and caretakers of technology within an organisation.
Mathematics is the science and study of number, quantity, and space, either as abstract concepts as pure mathematics, or applied to other disciplines such as physics and engineering. You will learn how mathematics underpins most technological advances that we rely on every day. Mathematics is essential in a variety of careers or you can specialise as a mathematician or statistician.
In a Media production major, you will learn how to create professional media content. This could be in the more conventional media space such as photomedia and traditional media like video, television and radio; or in the virtual space with websites and associated online multimedia. Digital and online media jobs have become more common in recent years as internet and web-based media production work has increased.
Software developers focus on analysing a client’s needs. Students in this area learn how to design the best software architecture solutions, coordinate the implementation, integration and testing of software, and provide long-term maintenance. In a software engineering degree, you will study what is behind much of the everyday technology we take for granted - from our iPads, computer software and mobile phones through to digital televisions, computer games and online banking.
Studying a combined degree gives you two qualifications at once. The advantage is that you graduate with two degrees in less time than doing them separately. You may also gain a competitive edge in the employment market as employers are increasingly looking for staff with diverse skill-sets.
