This combined program offers students choice and flexibility in their studies. Students interested in information technology and science have the opportunity to study both degrees simultaneously over 5 years. The combined program emphasises the natural synergy between information technology and science - all Science areas involve using information technology and many Science graduates work in information technology.

Life after Study
Agricultural scientists study commercial plants, animals and cultivation techniques to improve the productivity and sustainability of farms and agricultural industries.
Analysts define software requirements and specifications, and guide programme design and development. The analyst's role sits between the initial business analysis stage and the detailed system design, building and programming stages of the systems development process.
Biochemists study the chemistry of living systems to increase scientific knowledge and develop ways to apply this knowledge in areas such as medicine, veterinary science, agriculture, environmental science and manufacturing. Biochemistry provides a basis for all the life sciences.
Botanists study the biology of all types of plants to increase scientific knowledge and apply this knowledge in areas such as conservation and management of natural resources, agriculture, forestry, horticulture, medicine and biotechnology.
Business systems analysts study the overall business and information needs of an organisation in order to develop solutions to business and related technology problems. A business systems analyst's role is usually undertaken prior to the system design, building and programming stages of the systems development process.
Chemists study the physical and chemical properties of materials to determine their composition. They use this information to develop new materials and products, to devise more efficient processes for making materials and to increase scientific knowledge. Chemists should not be confused with pharmacists (see separate entry for Pharmacist).
Computer engineers are involved in the installation, repair and servicing of computers and associated equipment.
Geographic information systems officers design, develop and customise geographic information systems and provide technical and analytical support to address issues such as environmental management, exploration and mining, land ownership and titles, urban and regional planning, utilities and asset management, and demographic marketing.
Geophysicists study the structure and composition of zones below the surface of the earth by taking measurements using seismic, gravity, magnetic and electrical data collection methods.
Life scientists examine the anatomy, physiology and biochemistry of humans, animals, plants and other living organisms to better understand how living organisms function and interact with each other and the environment.
Marine biologists study the origin, structure, functions and behaviour of all forms of life in the sea and connected estuaries, rivers and lakes, as well as their relationships with each other and how they are affected by environmental factors.
Mathematicians apply and develop mathematical principles to solve problems in all areas of the sciences, technology, social sciences, business, industry and commerce.
Medical scientists conduct medical laboratory tests to provide information for diagnosing, treating and preventing disease.
Microbiologists study microscopic forms of life such as bacteria, viruses, protozoa, algae and fungi to increase scientific knowledge and develop medical, veterinary, industrial, environmental and other practical applications.
Multimedia developers generate and manipulate graphic images, animations, sound, text and video into consolidated and seamless multimedia applications. Multimedia applications include computer-based interactive training, data presentation and information kiosks, CD-ROMs, entertainment and educational products, and multimedia presentations.
Pharmacologists evaluate the origin, effects and mechanisms of drugs and develop them for human and animal use.
Physicists study the behaviour of the physical world at the most basic level and find practical ways to apply new knowledge gained from their research in areas of science and technology.
Physicists are usually identified within three broad roles:
- theoretical physicists, who develop theories or models of how particular aspects of the world work
- experimental physicists, who test these theories, determining their limits and suggesting new approaches to them
- applied physicists, who apply these findings in practical settings, such as within industry and through the introduction of new technology.
There is interaction between all three roles and physicists generally have skills in each of these areas.
Psychologists study human behaviour and the processes associated with how people think and feel, conduct research and provide treatment and counselling in order to reduce distress and behavioural and psychological problems. They promote mental health and positive behaviour in individuals and groups. Psychologists work on a broad range of issues with clients, including children, adults, couples, families and organisations.
