Computer Science - C3702

Computer Science

Bachelor degree (honours year)

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.

The course will deepen your understanding of the fundamental conceptual, methodological and implementation issues that define computer science. The additional units allow you to study intelligent systems, algorithms and discrete structures or other topics at an advanced level. You will undertake research methodology training and carry out an independent research project on your selected topic, working closely with a supervisor who will provide you with individual guidance and academic counselling.

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