Why study Honours degree of Bachelor of Computer Science?

If the standard version of this degree sparks a desire to dig deeper into a topic, the extra year of this honours degree includes a research thesis and additional units to give you the chance to really pursue your passion.

You'll develop high-level research skills that future employers will value or you can develop further with a master's degree or PhD.

Geoffrey Pascoe combined this course with mechatronics engineering and science degrees. He's now off to Oxford University as a Rhodes scholar to complete a Doctorate in Engineering Science and fulfil his dream of helping to cut pollution, congestion, accident rates and travel times as a transportation technology expert.

The course will deepen your understanding of the fundamental conceptual, methodological and implementation issues that define computer science. The extra units allow you to study intelligent systems, algorithms and discrete structures or other topics at an advanced level.

Available for full and part-time study at our Clayton campus, it will stimulate your thinking and open up new opportunities.

David Farr combined the degree with his science course before completing a Graduate Diploma of Meteorology with the Bureau of Meteorology.

"I chose computer science as the style of thinking required is a good foundation for study in other areas, beyond computation," he says.

"I also enjoyed the creative aspects of programming, both in solving a problem or in creating a piece of art. Computer science can be fun and satisfying."

David's uses computational methods and skills learnt at Monash to create new forecasting aids and tools to predict the weather more accurately and help farmers, aviators and other members of the West Australian community make sensible decisions when facing cyclones and other extreme weather events.

This course will give you the skills to make a difference too.
