The School of Computing and Information Systems has undertaken a significant revision of the degree offerings by the School. A considerable degree and curriculum development process based on the Australian Computer Society (ACS) recommended process was undertaken with information sought from all stakeholders. A comprehensive study of what was available nationally and internationally was also undertaken, as well as a review of the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) international curricula in all ICT related-fields and as well as a review of ACS curricula for accreditation. On the basis of all the information gathered, a new single undergraduate degree (BICT) and a new single postgraduate degree (MITS) have been developed. The new degrees have been reviewed by stakeholders and have received approval as meeting their stakeholder needs. The degrees were also reviewed by an academic review panel from national universities and were commended as being very coherent, strong, and contemporary degrees.
