Assumed knowledge: 

The Bachelor of Computing and Cyber Security is a three-year program at pass level. If eligible, students who have completed the pass degree, may be admitted to an additional one-year Honours program.
This program is built on solid computer science and mathematics fundamentals with a focus on both theoretical foundations and practical approaches to computation and its applications within security. In this program, students first apply these techniques to gaming and then later learn more about hardware, systems, networking and the Internet, and learn to secure such environments.

The design methods, tools and programming ability gained can be applied to many kinds of computer applications. In a final-year capstone team project students will be able to select from a wide range of ADF and civilian application domains in which to develop these abilities in computing and cyber security.

Students will use state of the art equipment in all their security and forensics courses in a Cyber Range.

Pass-level students in Computing and Cyber Security should complete their programs within three years. Eligible and approved Honours students who are RAN midshipmen or RAAF officer cadets can continue with their programs at the end of the third year. Army officer cadets, however, at the end of their third year transfer to the Royal Military College, Duntroon. After completing a year of military training they are commissioned as lieutenants and those who are continuing with Honours return to the Academy to complete their program.
