In an age of increasing technological advancements the synergy between science and information technology will only become stronger. IT underpins virtually all areas of science and the world needs graduates who can straddle both. In this double degree course you will acquire creative and analytical skills to use IT to advance science. This could be anything from designing a stunning visualisation of scientific data, to building an app for fieldwork data collection to setting up the business IT processes to deliver a scientific product via the internet.


The course includes compulsory (core) and elective units selected from the range of Faculty of Information Technology units (96 points), plus units chosen from the Bachelor of Science course (total of 96 points). Students will hone their practical skills through either an industry experience studio project, or the highly regarded IT Industry Based Learning (IBL) scholarship program.
