The Associate Degree in Computing is a 2-year award which provides a solid foundation to the disciplines of Computing and Computer Science. Students complete 16 units with at least 10 relating specifically to IT. Some foundation units are allowed to better prepare students for bachelors degree study.
The associate degree articulates to the Bachelor of Computing; with appropriate unit choices, the Bachelor of Computing degree may be completed after one additional full-time year.
For more information see the introduction to the
73D Bachelor of Computing degree.
