Science and Computer Science - S2004

Information and communications technology is driving many of the changes in science, so it's an exciting time to combine the study of computer science with any of the emerging or traditional areas of science. Science also increasingly relies on computing in collecting, storing and analysing large volumes of data such as computationally intensive simulations of new physical phenomena.

This double degree course will provide you with a highly transferable set of skills and knowledge. It develops your scientific thinking skills, including critical analysis and problem-solving ability, and adds computational and complex IT skills, maximising opportunities for employment related to information technology and science.

This course leads to two separate degrees:

  • the Bachelor of Science,


and depending upon your specialisation,

  • the Bachelor of Computer Science or
  • the Bachelor of Computer Science in Data Science.


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


You will be presented with some very exciting career choices. Depending on what area of science you chose to specialise in your career options could include geodynamics, meteorology, environmental and 3-D modelling, artificial intelligence, bioinformatics and biocomputing, cryptography, robotics, financial and statistical analysis and modelling, biomedical computing, and any field where scientific data management (storage, analysis, manipulation and presentation) is important.
