Bachelors of Computer Science / Science

Combine your studies in computer science with a Bachelor of Science, and graduate with qualifications that place you at the forefront of today's technology-driven job market.

Undertake this four year dual program to obtain two qualifications in less time and graduate with in-demand skills, ready to make a difference in solving some of world's most challenging problems.

Computer science combines the theoretical studies of algorithms and data structures, with the practical challenges of implementing them in hardware and software systems. Skills learnt in this program are used in fields ranging from bioinformatics to digital humanities. 

You'll develop the strong analytical, logical and development skills necessary to advance computing, its applications and beyond. You can specialise in cyber security, data science, machine learning, programming languages or scientific computing.

In the science program, students can select from a broad based set of courses which lay the foundation for completion of a specialised major in later years. Choose from a wide range of specialist areas (majors) to develop your interdisciplinary scientific knowledge and practical skills while pursuing studies that suit your interests and ambitions, with the freedom to mix and match course combinations.

Upon graduation, you can anticipate high employability rates and attractive starting salaries because of the skills and expertise you'll develop through this program.

Program highlights

  • Build your technical expertise through a combination of laboratory based practicals and workshops, plus Australian or international field studies, internships and work experience.
  • Choose your speciality from a huge range of science disciplines, amongst the widest in Australia.
  • Graduate with skills that are in high demand from some of the world's largest corporations, such as Apple, Google, Oracle and Microsoft.
