SIT111 is the foundation unit for the Bachelor Computer Science degree. It emphasises the role that a professional computer scientist plays in the development of complex computer solutions. It introduces students to the major areas within computer science including: hardware, software, operating system, program development, algorithms design and advanced topics such as cloud computing, cognitive computing and data science. Students will explore the role of abstraction in computer science by adopting the computational thinking. This unit will prepare students for subsequent inquiry into cloud computing, cognitive computing or data science, and it will allow students demonstrate competence in implementing algorithm in a cross-platform programming language.
