2. Requirements

Candidates for the degree of Bachelor of Computer Science and Technology (BCST) are required to gain credit for 192 credit points from the units of study set out. The selection of units must satisfy the degree rules in the Resolutions of the Faculty. In particular; all core units must be completed; along with an appropriate amount from the elective units of study as recommended by the Faculty. Candidates for the BIT degree must complete a stream in either Computer Science or Information Systems; or both; as described in the Table above.

Enrolment is subject to the following constraints;

At most 72 credit points accumulated from first year units (core and recommended electives) can be counted for degree completion.

Through 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.

Students are required to complete at least 36 credit points of 3000-level from the core; selected core and recommended electives units of study listed here for the IS stream.

Maths/Statistics requirement: A total of 18 credit points (with at least 6 credit points of 2000-level or above) of MATH and/or STAT units of are required for completion of this degree All 1000-level and 2000-level units offered in the Science subject areas of Mathematics and Statistics can be taken to meet this requirement; however the School recommends students choose from the following units; MATH1001; MATH1002; MATH1003; MATH1004; MATH1005; MATH2069; MATH2063 and STAT2012. MATH and STAT units that are not taken as core units can be taken as other units. A full list of MATH and STAT units are available from Science Faculty handbook.

All 2000-level ELEC units of study are able to be used to replace 2nd year recommended units as listed above.

All 3000-level and above ELEC units of study are able to be used to replace 3rd year recommended units as listed above.
