Dual degrees broaden your opportunities and allow you to study different areas simultaneously

The Faculty of Science and the Faculty of Engineering offer a dual degree program which qualifies students for two degrees after the equivalent of five years of successful full-time study leading to the award of the degrees Bachelor of Science (Advanced) and Bachelor of Engineering. On completion of this program, students will have attained a sound knowledge base in both their Advanced Science and Engineering specialisations. 

Bachelor of Science

UNSW offers science students the most advanced facilities and innovative teaching. The Advanced Science degree has been designed to cater for the specific abilities and interests of talented students with a superior ATAR score.Your degree is made up of individual courses, some prescribed, some free for you to choose. In special courses in first and second years, students work together in multi-disciplinary group projects aimed at acquiring and applying the critical and analytical skills behind scientific research. In second year and later years, a number of courses are offered at advanced level. Training is directed to developing the critical and integrative thinking needed for the successful completion of a research-based honours year.

Computer science combines computer programming with other disciplines.

Computer science combines proficiency in computer programming, data structures and algorithms with other disciplines including commerce, maths, physics and languages. You will study computation, which looks at how computers process and sort information. Computer Science looks at how algorithms translate elements encoded in a computer's memory and deliver them as information that has been requested or searched for. With this dual degree program, students can add a Science program to the standard, professionally accredited BSc in Computer Science program offered by the School of Computer Science and Engineering.
