The first two years of the program are similar to the standard Computer Engineering plan. Some year 1 subjects are substituted, and additional study is undertaken in year 2. The remaining two years of Computer Engineering are spread over three years, with Biomedical material integrated into the program. Fewer computing electives are available compared to the single degree and two theses are submitted rather than one. Students may revert to the single degree within the first two years without loss of standing.
UOC denotes Units of Credit, a measure of the amount of work required in a course.

* COMP3711 will be replaced by COMP4920 from s2, 2012 onwards. If it suits timetabling requirements, students may still take COMP3711 in s1.
Breadth courses: A listing of the available courses can be found here.
Depth courses: Courses that require a Breadth elective, or a core COMP3 course as a pre-requisite. A listing can be found here.
CoverageCourses: Other COMP3 or COMP4 courses not listed as Breadth or Depth.
Biomedical Engineering Electives please refer to the GSBmE website.
UNSW wants all students to develop skills in a broad range of areas, not just in their specific study discipline, and so students in all degrees are required to undertake a number of general studies courses outside their discipline. Students should select courses from disciplines that are not available in their program as core or elective courses.
See UNSW on General Educaiton for more information.
