Academic Item Menu


The Faculty of Science and the Faculty of Engineering offer a dual degree program leading to the award of the degrees Bachelor of Science (Advanced Mathematics)(Honours) and Bachelor of Science (Computer Science). The typical duration of this program is 5 years full-time.

The Advanced Mathematics (Honours) and Computer Science degrees lend themselves well to each other. While the Advanced Mathematics (Honours) degree focuses on an in-depth understanding of pure and applied mathematics, the computer science degree looks at the design, construction and uses of computer systems. Your mathematics study will assist with the manipulation of data as well as the development of algorithms in computer science. There is no better degree to combine your passion for mathematics as well as computer systems.

Students may not count 'COMP' courses towards their Science requirements unless they are specified as core courses in their major (i.e. for these students 'COMP' courses will not count as 'Science' courses).

Major Declaration

3956 - Advanced Mathematics (Honours)

Students must complete exactly one approved Bachelor of Science (Advanced Mathematics) (Honours) major, and this must be declared before enrolling in Level III courses. Students cannot undertake a double major in this program.
