Course Structure

In the Bachelor of Computing, you choose from one of the three majors, which have linked minors and degree electives, and choose 8 student electives. See Degree combinations below for the major, minor and degree elective combinations available.

This degree consists of a total of 24 units comprising:
  • A major of 8 units: 2 introductory, 2 intermediate, 4 advanced units
  • A minor of 4 units: 2 introductory, 2 intermediate units
  • Four degree electives: 2 introductory, 2 intermediate or advanced units.
  • Eight student electives: units which may be chosen from this or any other subject area within the University, provided they meet the unit level requirements for the degree (see next point below), unit pre-requisites and quotas. You may take individual units or study up to the equivalent of a second major or a minor through your student electives and try out different subject areas - it's your choice.
  • Unit level requirements for the degree are: between 8-10 units at introductory level, 6-10 units at intermediate level and 6-10 units at advanced level.
Unit choice notes

  • Note 1: In Computing major combinations, the units KXX131 and KXT107 must be taken as degree electives if not already completed as part of the major or minor.
  • Note 2: In the Human Interface Technology major, KXH344 must be taken at advanced level if KXX231 has not been completed at intermediate level in the Computing (HIT) minor.
  • Note 3: If you choose advanced level degree electives, you need to enrol in 2 student electives at intermediate level to meet the degree requirements of (a minimum of) 6 intermediate level units.
