University of Newcastle
This combined degree program provides students with an opportunity to undertake concurrent study in Mathematics and Computer Science and complete two awards over a period of four years.
In general, a combined degree program offers greater breadth of learning, enhancing the academic and professional qualities gained in each separate degree. At the same time, it recognises the increasing need for students to graduate with multidisciplinary skills.
Along with core courses and a chosen major in Computer Science, students undertake core courses and a chosen major in Mathematics. Depending on the majors selected, students may also be required take a number of electives according to their particular areas of interest.
