6Maths Units for IT


Note:  MATH1001/MATH1021 and MATH1002 are recommended for first semester (or advanced alternatives MATH1901/MATH1921 and MATH1902).

Note:   Continuing students should note that the 2015 BIT combined degree enrolment table shown here differs from previous years by bringing the Computer Science and Informations Systems streams together, rather than treating as separate courses. The merging of the stream details was done to to make it easier for students to compare the different requirements of each stream, and see where the requirements are the same in both cases. Apart from this change, the BIT remains as it was before.
