A list of courses offered by the School can be found each April and October on the UNSW Timetabling website. UNSW schedules courses one semester at a time, and enrolments for March commence in the December, enrolments for July commence in May.
The School offers four primary undergraduate degrees:
The School also offers a number of combined degrees with Science, Arts and Commerce and a concurrent five year degree leading to the award of the Bachelor of Engineering and Master of Biomedical Engineering (BE/MBiomedE). In 2000, the School began offering a combined five year program in Bachelor of Engineering and BSc in Computer Science. This combined program allows students to combine a BE in a traditional Engineering discipline with an undergraduate degree in Computing.
Honours in the BE program is awarded on the basis of superior performance over the complete course. Honours in the BSc degree is awarded after completing an honours year. All BE students and all BSc (Honours) students in the School must produce a major report (thesis) on a project that they have undertaken in their final year. The project occupies a substantial part of that year and can be of research quality.
In addition, the School offers the Computer Science Co-op Fastrack Program which is an industry-sponsored scholarship computer science program incorporating three semesters of industrial training. Entry to this specialised program is competitive and is by additional application and interview.
All BE students must complete sixty days Industrial Training.
The School has a reputation of producing graduates with solid experience with projects of significant size. It encourages top undergraduate students to join research groups and contribute to their work.
The School encourages its students to participate in international competitions, such as RoboCup
The School of Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) at the University of New South Wales is one of the largest and finest of its kind in Australasia. We offer postgraduate coursework programs of study to cater for a range of backgrounds, from graduates with no computing background who wish to broaden their knowledge as IT professionals through to Computer Science or Information Technology graduates who wish to undertake advanced computing study and/or get up-to-date with the latest trends.
CSE is the top IT research school in Australia and offers leading-edge courses delivered by top-class academics. Students will find themselves immersed in an active and exciting research environment, where the next generation of IT is being developed.
Unique among Universities in the Sydney basin, CSE@UNSW offers a number of cutting edge advanced courses taught by experts from National ICT Australia, the research institute funded by Australia's Federal Government.
CSE also has a strong commitment to research with focus in the areas of Artificial Intelligence, Bioinformatics, Computer Architecture, Computer Systems, Database Systems, Networks & Software Engineering. It is complimented with high quality research facilities. Appropriate qualifications are necessary for admission into research programs, however it may be possible to undertake a minor research project in one of several masters programs.
