Bachelor of Science / Bachelor of Computer Science

Monash University

Type of institution: University/Higher Education Institution
Level: Undergraduate
CRICOS: 00008C

This double degree course will provide students with a highly transferable set of skills and knowledge. It develops scientific thinking skills, including critical analysis and problem-solving ability, and adds computational and complex IT skills, maximising opportunities for employment related to information technology and science. This course leads to two separate degrees and students will gain all the benefits of each degree course and be fully equipped to pursue a career in either field separately or to combine the two in their chosen work. Depending on what area of science students chose to specialise in their career options could include geodynamics, meteorology, environmental and 3D modelling, artificial intelligence, bioinformatics and biocomputing, cryptography, robotics, financial and statistical analysis and modelling, biomedical computing, and any field where scientific data management (storage, analysis, manipulation and presentation) is important.


An equal number of units in science and computer science. Students complete a major sequence in computer science. For the science component of the course, students complete 2 science core units, as well as a minor or major sequence in mathematics and a major or minor sequence in another science area of study.
