This program has been discontinued and replaced with the Bachelor of Media Arts/ BSc (Computer Science) 3969 program for students commencing in S1 2013 or later.
The BSc(Computer Science) BDM dual program provides both a technical and creative foundation to the development and use of computer graphics. It also allows specialisation in the final semester in either the technical or creative strand of computer graphics and associated fields.
UOC denotes Units of Credit, a measure of the amount of work required in a course.

The flexibility of the Computer Science Program allows specialisations within the program such as Robotics and Computer Games as well as combining it with minors such as Commerce and Japanese. You can specialise in the following areas:
COMPA1 Computer Science
COMPG1 Computer Game Design & Construction
COMPI1 Artificial Intelligence
COMPH1 Human Computer Interaction
COMPE1 Electronic Commerce
COMPN1 Computer Networks
COMPD1 Database Systems
Full details of these streams can be found here.
With the approval of the Program Director, students in this program wishing to fulfil the requirements for a major in a second science discipline, as well as the Computer Science requirements, may substitute a course from the other discipline for one of the level 3/4 computing electives.
The selections for secondary streams in the Computer Science program are the same as for a straight Bachelor of Science and can be found here in Table A.
Computer Science Honours takes one year full-time or two years part-time of study. Normally, students are expected to have attained an average mark of 65 (according to the myUNSW calculations) to qualify for entry to the honours year. Students who do not meet this expectation may be admitted in special circumstances.
Students who have graduated with a three year computer science degree from the University of NSW or another university can apply for admission to honours.
Detailed information about the program is available on the Honours website.
