Industry Stream subjects

Masters students choose six subjects from one of the following eleven industry elective streams. The industry elective streams consist of industry certified subjects whose content may vary over time as the technology changes, in order for the most up-to-date combination to be available. Each stream is a complete and discrete unit. However, where a student wishes to develop knowledge and skills across technology areas they may, with the permission of the Course Manager, choose subjects from more than one stream.

A ‘credit only’ subject is where students undertake the relevant accreditation with the industry vendor and then seeks credit for this study within the course. The subject is not offered by CSU.
