Admission & Prerequisites
Satisfaction of the University's minimum entry requirements for degree courses.
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.
The BComp and BIS degrees are accredited by the Australian Computer Society. It is anticipated that the combined degree will be similarly accredited.
