Deakin University has just announced from 2017 they will be offering Australia’s first four-year Software Engineering course in Robotics and Smart Systems. Robots are the future and it won’t be long until robots are a normal part of our day-to-day lives. But have you ever thought about how these smart robots will be created? Using the skills acquired throughout the course, graduates could be developing the next smart car, the next smart watch or a new form of artificial intelligence. The course has been designed in response to industry demand for innovative software engineers capable of designing and developing complex software systems for the modern world.
