Special Topics in Computing is our place for small, research-led courses taught by ANU experts and visiting scholars. Taking a special topic is a great way to extend your knowledge and start your journey in a research field or community of practice.
These courses cater for later-year undergraduate and postgraduate students looking for further depth in their computing education. Some courses are one-off experiences while others may be coursework under development for our regular curriculum. In any special topics course, you will have the opportunity to work together in a focussed environment with like-minded students and interact with ANU researchers and visitors on highly engaging subject matter.
The curriculum and learning outcomes for each special topic is different, and different topics are offered each semester, see the websites below for information on each course available in the coming semester.
