What will I learn?

Combine your studies in computer science with a Bachelor of Science, and graduate with qualifications that place you at the forefront of today's technology-driven job market.

Study this four-year dual program to obtain two qualifications in less time and graduate with in-demand skills, ready to make a difference in solving some of world's most challenging problems.

Computer science combines the theoretical studies of algorithms and data structures with the practical challenges of implementing them in hardware and software systems. Skills learnt in this program are used in fields ranging from bioinformatics to digital humanities.

You'll develop the strong analytical, logical and development skills necessary to advance computing and its applications. You can specialise in cyber security, data science, machine learning, programming languages or scientific computing.

In the science program, students can select from a broad-based set of courses, which lay the foundation for completing a specialised major in later years. Choose from a wide range of majors to develop your interdisciplinary scientific knowledge and practical skills while pursuing studies that suit your interests and ambitions, with the freedom to mix and match course combinations.

When you graduate, you can anticipate high employability rates and attractive starting salaries because of the skills and expertise you'll develop through this program.

Ecology and Conservation Biology

Broaden your understanding of how organisms interact with each other and their environments, and be part of the solution for protecting our natural world. Ecology and conservation biology are vital for solving the environmental challenges our society is facing today. You’ll be taught by internationally renowned conservation experts, and can choose to specialise in conservation biology, marine ecology or evolutionary ecology.

Gain real-world experience in solving ecological problems by conducting fieldwork in a range of rainforest, outback and marine environments. You’ll be equipped to tackle global issues such as biodiversity loss, climate change, diminishing natural resources and the environmental impacts of human activity.

Employment demand has risen strongly over the past 5 years with roles available in government departments and agencies, private industry or environmental organisations.
