The Bachelor of Computer Science (Honours) is intended to provide students who have demonstrated academic ability with the opportunity to pursue their undergraduate studies to an advanced level, to deepen their intellectual understanding in the fields of Computer Science and/or Software Engineering, and to develop their research skills.
The honours course is a recognised point of entry into postgraduate research studies. Students will concentrate on a chosen problem from the fields of Computer Science and/or Software Engineering, gaining a better understanding and practising appropriate research techniques. Students will also be required to complete a substantial original piece of research for their thesis to ensure that they develop the ability to conceptualise problems, devise research strategies and carry out individual research work under the supervision of a member of staff with expertise in the area.
Graduates of this course will have advanced skills in Computer Science and/or Software Engineering and will have well-developed oral and written communication skills.
