The Bachelor of Computer Science and Technology honours year is both a preparation for postgraduate study and a capstone to an undergraduate degree. It is available for both the computer science and information systems streams, and generally requires an additional 48 credit points of study, however this is dependent on the study completed during your degree.
If you have studied computer sciences, you will have gained many technical and non-technical skills which are highly valued by employers, from leadership to programming. The increasing scope of computer science means you have plenty of choice in a wide variety of highly specialized areas. With computer technologies playing an ever growing role in all aspects of modern life, you re likely to find your computer science skills in high demand across many different industries. These include: financial organizations, management consultancy firms, software houses, communications companies, data warehouses, multinational companies (IT-related, financial services and others), governmental agencies, universities and hospitals. However, unsurprisingly, most graduates go into roles within the computer industry.
As always, it's extremely beneficial to have completed relevant work experience. You should also consider compiling a portfolio of your own independent projects outside of your degree, which could be in the form of programming, moderating online or even building an app. This will demonstrate to employers your interest in the subject and your problem-solving skills, creativity and initiative.
Students who have qualified for the Bachelor of Computer Science and Technology degree may apply to enter the Bachelor of Computer Science and Technology (Honours) year. Please note that unlike the Bachelor of Information Technology (Honours) or the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours), honours in the Bachelor of Computer Science and Technology requires an additional 48 credit points of study. It is available in either the computer science or information systems stream, depending on the study completed during the degree. Computer science honours provides specialist training for postgraduate research in computer science, and for IT research and development in industry or business. Information systems honours provides graduates with the analytical and consulting skills for solving problems (or performing research) in a variety of areas in the IT sector. I want to find another Bachelor Course As a specialist degree, the aim of honours is not to cover the full breadth of IT, but rather to introduce students to the cutting edge in selected areas of research and practice. It provides an opportunity to become actively involved in the research carried out by members of the school.
