Postgrad student with computer science project

Computer Science

Our Bachelor of Science in Computer Science is a flexible, three-year degree and students have the ability to incorporate a variety of elective courses. See our Computer Science page for detail or all courses for Computer Science and Software Engineering on the University's course information system.

Software Engineering

Software Engineering is a discipline in the four-year Bachelor of Engineering with Honours. Most courses are prescribed and there are prerequisites, practical work requirements and an intermediate year of study. See our Software Engineering page for more details about the programme.

Introductory courses

These depend on your degree.

These courses are required to advance to most of our second-year computer science papers. If you are not sure which degree you want to do yet, start with the Software Engineering Intermediate Year because it covers everything for both degrees.
