NOTE: Where the 2014 requirements for a programme differ from those previously published, care will be taken to ensure existing students are not disadvantaged.
The Computer Technology specialisation involves the study of both
computer hardware and computer software. A particularly important aspect of this major is the interaction between these components. Graduates of this specialisation have many of the skills of traditional computer engineers but also have a strong grounding in computer science. Topics include computer hardware, digital electronics, systems software, operating systems and digital communications systems.
We list the Computer Technology requirements in the form of a "degree planner". Where semesters are shown they refer to the 2014 schedule.
YEAR 2 – 120 POINTS
Programming with Data Structures
Object Oriented Program Design
Logic and Computation
Electronics for Digital Systems
Analog Electronics and Circuit Analysis
YEAR 3 – 120 POINTS
Computer Systems Architecture
|40 points of papers at 300 LEVEL
YEAR 4 – 120 POINTS
Report of an Investigation
|60 points of papers in Computer Science at 400 LEVEL
Must include at least three papers chosen from:
* For the honours programme, the two 200 level papers in year 3 must be replaced by an additional two 300 level papers, and year 4 requirements are COMP520 Report of an Investigation (45 points) plus five COMP5XX papers (15 points each).
Elective papers may be replaced by papers at a higher level.
Admission to Honours Programme
To be eligible for honours candidates will require an average of B+ in at least 80 points at 300 level in Computer Science papers. This does not apply to double major students, who will be treated separately.
