This course provides specialised education in computing to the recent graduate in Information Technology. It introduces students to the principles and practices of research, in preparation for postgraduate study or advanced professional employment.
Applicants must have completed a degree in computing with a high standard of achievement, especially in the final year. Normally students are not permitted to enrol for an Honours degree later than the end of the second year after completing the pass degree. A school Honours Committee determines admissions and individual programs before enrolment.
This is a one year full-time or two year part-time course. It consists of:
- two fourth/fifth year level coursework subjects in computing. The availability of given subjects depends on demand. Early negotiation with the course coordinator/Honours Committee is recommended. Equivalent subjects at Melbourne (Bundoora), other universities, or from commercial courses may also be considered for credit in this category
- a research methods subject
- an independent research project leading to a dissertation, CSE4HTB, equivalent to five subjects.
The course is valued at 120 credit points.
