The Computer Science Honours program is a one year full-time or two year part-time program. It is typically undertaken after completing the requirements for The single or combined Bachelor of Science in Computer Science having satisfied the various Computer Science prerequisites specified below. Applicants from other universities who have majored in computer science and obtained the equivalent of a 65 average are also eligible.
Entry to the honours program is by application to the Computer Science Honours Coordinator. Normally, students are expected to have attained a weighted average mark (WAM) of 65 to qualify for entry to the honours year. Students who do not meet this expectation may be admitted in special circumstances.
The honours year has two components:
Thesis topics can be viewed on the CSE thesis website:

Suitable courses include:
Honours grading is based on the weighted average mark (WAM) of all the courses in honours year (incl. thesis). Courses are weighted by their unit of credit value.
