You will gain all the benefits of each degree course and be fully equipped to pursue a career in either field separately or combine the two in your chosen work.

- Use your mathematical talents in Computer Programming and Actuarial Studies or Econometrics to develop new algorithms.
- Study Finance or Management Studies and pursue general management or business development roles in IT companies and across the IT sector.

You will have a wide variety of career opportunities. Regardless of your computer science specialisation or the major you choose, you will develop the technical skills required to work across the computer science and IT sectors and the commerce skills to pursue roles in project management, systems management or data analytics.
