Course Objectives

The BComp-BIS degree has the combined objectives of the Bachelor of Computing and Bachelor of Information Systems degrees. The study of Information Systems units form a useful combination with Computing units. Specifically, the objectives of the combined degree are:

  • The course objectives of the current Bachelor of Computing

  • The course objectives of the current Bachelor of Information Systems

  • To improve employment opportunities for IT graduates

  • To more closely integrate the Computing and Information Systems disciplines

Articulation to/from Course

Credit for units included in the schedules for the BComp and BIS will be awarded to students who transfer to the combined degree. Articulation arrangements already in place for TAFE programs will be awarded on the same basis as for the single BComp and BIS degrees.

Professional Recognition

The BComp and BIS degrees are accredited by the Australian Computer Society. It is anticipated that the combined degree will be similarly accredited.
