NOTE: Where the 2014 requirements for a programme differ from those previously published, care will be taken to ensure existing students are not disadvantaged.
We list the requirements in the form of a "degree planner". Where semesters are shown they refer to the 2014 schedule.
† BSc regulation 8 requires 105 points across at least four science subjects. STAT121 and STAT111 will help satisfy these requirements and is strongly recommended in its own right. It also helps students keep their options open for changing to another major with the Faculty if desired.
†† Students in the Applied Computing specialisation may replace these papers.
* These elective 100 level papers should be recognised Science papers, which are all papers offered by the Faculty of Science & Engineering, all COMP, STAT and MATH papers (except MATH168), and PHIL102, PSYC102 and PSYC103.
Elective papers may be replaced by papers at a higher level.
Admission to Honours Programme
Candidates will require an average grade of A- in at least 80 points at 300 level in Computer Science. The chosen programme of study for the honours degree must include 120 points at 500 level, with at least 60 points in Computer Science, plus COMP591, the dissertation worth 30 points.
But wait, there's more...
Each of these specialisations are carefully designed sets of papers that will ensure that you have a good mastery of that area of Computer Science. If you successfully complete one of these specialisations, it will be printed on your academic transcript.
If you follow the above requirements, you will get a standard BSc in Computer Science. However, there are also several specialised forms of this degree that may interest you:
For a double major, students must complete:
- 120 points at 100 level
- 120 points at 200 level – 60 points in each major
- 120 points at 300 level – 60 points in each major
