Computer Systems Major  

The Computer Systems major is available to students enrolled in any of the engineering double degree courses. Computer systems engineering is the synergistic combination of electronic engineering and computer science. Computer systems engineers have a wide knowledge of digital and analogue 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 supercomputers systems, as well as digital and mixed signal circuit design, real-time and embedded system implementation, and software engineering. Areas covered include the fundamental physical sciences, computer architecture, digital electronics, data communications, interfacing, real-time and embedded systems, robotics and software development. Employment opportunities include the development and design of microcomputer systems, computer networks, complex real-time systems, high performance processors, multimedia systems, and control and automation.

The Computer Systems major program consists of 15 units (225 credit points) of study as indicated below. 

This unit set is available on Joondalup Campus.
