Bachelor of Computer Science (Honours)
Course code/s: SHCS
|Course coordinator||Dr Eric Pardede|
|Available to international students||Yes|
|Course duration||1 year full-time|
|Credit points||120 credit points|
|Leave of absence available||No|
Current students: ASK La Trobe
Prospective students: Future Students
Students undertake a research project, across both CSE5TSA and CSE5TSB that takes the equivalent of eight or nine months of continuous work under the supervision of a member of staff. In the first semester, a literature review is written up and submitted as a hurdle requirement for the subject.
A list of prospective thesis topics is available from the Department of Computer Science and Information Technology.
To qualify for admission to the Honours Program, students are selected based on their performance in the final year of the pass degree course. Students must obtain a minimum average of 60 per cent across all of their third year subjects and obtain an average of at least 70 per cent over their best 60 credit points of third-year level computer science and information technology subjects (project included), the subjects CSE3PRA and CSE3PRB (30 credit points) will count as 15 credit points only in this calculation.
Meeting this requirement, however, does not guarantee a place in the Honours year as resources may limit the total number of places available, and students are expected to find a supervisor prior to enrolment.
Course intended learning outcomes
