About Us

The Department of Computing at Macquarie is part of the Faculty of Science and Engineering. The Department is research-driven and offers a comprehensive teaching program across the information communication technologies spectrum at undergraduate, postgraduate coursework, master of research and PhD study level. The Department is home to more than 30 full-time teaching and research academics and post-doctoral fellows, servicing the learning needs of many hundreds of undergraduate students each year, along with guiding over 45 higher degree research students working towards completion of their research degrees.

Courses offered from Macquarie’s Computing Department range from information systems and business analysis, to web design and development and software development- through to emerging innovation fields of data science, cybersecurity and games design and development.

Underpinning this teaching is an active and thriving research program covering a wide range of interests, including natural language technology, machine learning, network and security, virtual reality and simulation, as well as theoretical computer science.

The Department takes advantage of its strategic campus location nestled next to Australia’s emerging Business Innovation and IT hub - Macquarie Park in Sydney - to liaise closely with industry in the development and assessment of its teaching programs and research activity, and partners with the technology industry in several initiatives, including hosting the Microsoft Chair in Innovation within its academic staff.
