Our school is leading education and research in secure and people-friendly technologies that benefit our increasingly connected and data-rich world.

Technologies, such as machine learning, artificial intelligence and human-machine interfaces, are vital for businesses and communities to thrive. Our work revolves around the need for computer-based solutions that are secure, effective and people-orientated.

We're home to research groups that deliver industry and community-based solutions in human-computer interaction, information security and data science.

Our research

In an increasingly complex and fast moving world, the School of Computer Science conducts fundamental and applied research into helping people with differing abilities interact effectively with data, keeping data secure, transferring and storing data efficiently, and analysing data to produce new insights.

Our major research partners include:

Knowledge gained from our research projects also informs our undergraduate and postgraduate teaching courses.

Academic and postdoctoral researchers within the school undertake research projects funded by the Australian Research Council, Cooperative Research Centres and government and industry partners.

Research interests include eco-acoustics, enterprise system software re-engineering, interfaces for users with special needs, geodetic data analytics, human-computer interaction psychology, trusted data sharing in distributed networks, natural language processing, large-scale data analytics, text mining, cryptography, immersive technologies, bioinformatics, parallel programming, secure networking, software security, and wearable technologies.

Learning and teaching experience

Study computer science to develop expertise in software development, networked systems, information security, intelligent systems, user experience and more.

With its central city campus at Gardens Point, QUT has been the leading provider of information technology education in Brisbane for many years. The School of Computer Science offers undergraduate courses in information technology, data science and games and interactive environments, as well as Masters level degrees and Doctoral research projects. It has a strong emphasis on practical and applied technologies. Undergraduate IT students all undertake final-year projects with one of the school's numerous industry partners.
