This course provides a generalist education in information technology (IT) and the opportunity to specialise in information systems, software development, computer networks and web development. The course is structured to enable students to combine studies with another discipline. You may choose elective subjects from any other approved course with the approval of the course coordinator. You will complete subjects to the value of 120 credit points each year. The course consists of 24 semester subjects, comprising four subjects per semester in each year of study. Sixteen subjects must be IT subjects and four subjects must be non-IT subjects. No more than 10 subjects overall may be studied at first year level. All subjects are worth 15 credit points. Non-information technology and elective subjects - Students may take up to eight non-IT subjects for credit in the course. All elective choices must be approved by the course coordinator. Some possible areas are business, science, humanities, social science, mathematics, statistics, and public health. A limited number of scholarships are offered for students to undertake an industry-based learning component. Students who have completed two full years of study are eligible to apply. Each industry-based learning subject is undertaken full-time for half a year and is equivalent to two of the 24 subjects required for the degree to be awarded. Further details may be obtained from the Industry-Based Learning Coordinator.
