6INFO1103: Introduction to Programming


Note:  This unit is discontinued from 2018. Replacement units are INFO1110 and INFO1113.

If you have not completed INFO1103, you must complete both INFO1110 and INFO1113. You will take one less elective unit as a result.
6Maths Units for IT


Note:  MATH1001/MATH1021 and MATH1002 are recommended for first semester (or advanced alternatives MATH1901/MATH1921 and MATH1902).
6Science Level 1000 Units

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.

Note: A total of 96 credits of Science units must be completed as part of the combined Information Technologies/Science degree. The 96 credit points of Science units must include at least 54 credit points of units at level 2000 or higher and one major.

Course: Bachelor of Information Technology/Bachelor of Science (2015)
CP Required: 240
Min FT Duration: 5.00 Years
Min PT Duration: N/A
Faculty/School: Faculty of Engineering
Years Offered: 2017, 2016, 2015
Requirements: To qualify for the award of the combined degree, a candidate must successfully complete 240 credit points, comprising:

(a) units of study from the table of units for the Bachelor of Information Technology stream the candidate is pursuing, and ensuring: (i) no more than 72 credit points in junior (1000 level) units of study; (ii) at least 84 credit points in 3000-level or above units of study;

(b) a minimum of 96 credit points Science units of study, including at least 18 credit points of Mathematics and Statistics units of study;

(c) a major in a Science area listed in Table 1 of the Faculty of Science Handbook excluding Computer Science and Information Systems;

(d) and ensuring at least 54 credit points in the intermediate and senior Science units of study.

Progression requirement

Candidates in the BIT degree must maintain a credit average in each year of enrolment. If this level of result is not achieved candidates will be transferred to the BCST degree program.

Advanced alternatives

Through the units in this table candidates may substitute an advanced equivalent for a non- advanced unit mentioned. They may also substitute an appropriate unit from the Advanced Engineering program of the Faculty of Engineering; or the Talented Student Program of the Faculty of Science; if they are eligible to enrol in such units.

Honours

Honours is available to meritorious candidates, in either or both the Bachelor of Information Technology or the Bachelor of Science. Honours requires the completion of an alternative set of units in the final year of the Bachelor of Information Technology degree and of one additional full time year of study for the Bachelor of Science degree. The Resolutions of the Faculty of Science allow for part time honours in certain circumstances.

Admission to the honours program for the Bachelor of Information Technology is by permission of the program coordinator prior to completion of the final year. Admission requires an average (ISWAM) of at least 65 in units of study completed to that point. Candidates must complete the requirements for the pass degree but include the alternative 24 credit point honours pathway described in the table of units for the degree, with 24 credit points in 5000-level recommended units of study and achieve an Honours Result of 65 or above. Completion of the degree is required in the minimum standard full time duration.

Admission and award requirements for honours in the Bachelor of Science are listed in the course resolutions of the Faculty of Science.
