Bachelor of Engineering (Honours)/Bachelor of Computer Science
The University of Queensland - St Lucia

Course outline

This dual program allows you to combine studies in engineering with emerging computer science technologies. You’ll develop the strong analytical, logical and development skills necessary to advance computing and its applications alongside specialised engineering knowledge to meet the needs of the high-tech industries of the future. The computer science program combines theoretical studies of algorithms and data structures with the practical challenges of implementing them in hardware and software systems. Through the engineering program, you’ll benefit from hands-on experiences across all aspects of engineering and more study options for greater career opportunities. For more information, visit Bachelors of Engineering (Hons)/Computer Science at UQ.
