Program handbook

Description

Computer scientists work on challenging programming tasks, develop new software technologies and new ways to use computers. The field spans complex problem solving, artificial intelligence, robotics, computer graphics, digital forensics, bioinformatics, web development and data security. Computer science is fundamental to many everyday technologies like mobile phones, learning systems, online shopping, navigation systems, social media, computer games and programmable appliances.

Computer systems engineers are experts in software development, electronic hardware design and networking. They design, build and test computer hardware and interface hardware to other equipment and networks. They also write the software with which the end user interacts.

The Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Computer Systems) program covers the theoretical and practical knowledge required to create a computing system from inception. It enables students to innovate a computer system as part of an existing engineering system such as a controller of industrial plant or equipment. The degree focusses on underlying principles and techniques so that graduates are able to learn and apply new technologies as they emerge in the future.

This double degree program enables students to gain expertise in both areas, with a special emphasis on the elements where these disciplines interact.

Academic requirements for program completion

Total units required

400 units

Program duration

5 years full-time or part-time equivalent up to 12 years maximum.

International student visa holders who are studying the program on campus are required to enrol full time as per student visa requirements.

Program requirements

For all combined programs and in accordance with the Combined Degree Principles and Structures Guideline [000992], the core and minimum requirements for each single degree component must be met in each combined program. Consideration is given to overlapping courses and/or content where applicable, but to also ensure that accreditation is not compromised. 

In the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Computer Systems)/Bachelor of Computer Science program, students are required to complete 400 units. 

  • For the Computer Systems and Robotics Major, 370 units are core courses, 20 units are compulsory courses, and 10 units are directed courses.
  • For the Software Development Major, 360 units are core courses, 30 units are compulsory courses, and 10 units are directed courses.
  • For the Data Science Major, 350 units are core courses, 40 units are compulsory courses, and 10 units are directed courses.

Elective courses give students the opportunity to broaden their skills and knowledge in their own or another engineering discipline; or specialise in areas such as business, maths or science; or undertake study overseas. 

The program has a duration of 5 years full time (or part time equivalent). It is possible for a student to 'step out' with a single degree award only and not complete the combined program they are enrolled in. In order to accomplish this, a student would be required to complete the single degree requirements for their preferred degree and may be required to complete any omitted courses. A student wishing to 'step out' with a single degree should contact their program convenor or program advisor for further information.

This program can be completed in five years. However, a student's choice of directed courses may lead to timetabling issues that may extend the duration of their program. Students are advised to consult with their program convenor regarding their academic program.

Please note that if you undertake courses that are not in your approved program, you will be liable for additional fees for those courses. This is in addition to the fees associated with your normal program of study.

Students with a Band 1 or 2 in the NSW HSC course Extension 1 Mathematics OR who have completed NSW HSC Extension 2 Mathematics (or their interstate/international equivalents) are able to complete the higher level MATH1210/MATH1220 Mathematical Discovery 1/Mathematical Discovery 2 course in lieu of MATH1110/MATH1120. Please contact your program advisor if you wish to discuss this option.
