Computer Science and Technology (Honours), Bachelor

  • Application Deadline
  • 12 months
University rank #42 (QS) ,
The Computer Science and Technology (Honours) program from the University of Sydney is both a preparation for postgraduate study and a capstone to an undergraduate degree. It is available in either the computer science and information systems streams, and generally requires 48 credit points of study.  


The Computer Science and Technology (Honours) program from the University of Sydney provides specialist training for postgraduate research in computer science, and for IT research and development in industry or business. Information systems honours provides graduates with the analytical and consulting skills for solving problems (or performing research) in a variety of areas in the IT sector. 

Both consist of advanced coursework related to the research interests of members of the school and a year-long project conducted under the supervision of an academic staff member. As a specialist degree, the aim of honours is not to cover the full breadth of IT, but rather to introduce students to the cutting edge in selected areas of research and practice. It provides an opportunity to become actively involved in the research carried out by members of the school. Graduates take skills with them into the workplace, which give them a competitive edge. Consequently, University of Sydney graduates are much in demand within the industry.


Research in the Faculty of Engineering and IT spans all areas of human endeavour and its successes are the result of the unflagging curiosity and energy of our researchers and students. Our ongoing planning efforts aim to bolster our research strengths and create fertile ground for innovation. By creating the space for free intellectual inquiry, the Faculty fosters strong core disciplines as the essential foundation for our work.
