B-SCCSNT v.1 Bachelor of Science (Computer Systems and Networking)
This course is pending registration for International Onshore Students on Student Visas. Please contact the Curtin International Office to determine availability for International students.
Bachelor Degrees prepare students to develop broad and coherent knowledge and skills in a discipline for professional work and further learning corresponding to AQF level 7 qualifications.
Additional Course Expenses
Students may be expected to purchase a number of textbooks and other essential study materials.
Course Entry and Completion Details
Applicants for a Bachelor Degree are required to meet University academic and English language entry standards; details are provided at http://futurestudents.curtin.edu.au and include flexible entry pathways. Any specific course entry and completion requirements must also be met.
Successful completion of the first two years of the SLIIT Bachelor of Science Special (HONS) in Information Technology-Computer Systems and Networking degree meets the academic requirements for entry to Year 3 of the Curtin Bachelor of Science (Computer Systems and Networking Major). All students are required to satisfy Curtin’s English language requirements for undergraduate admission.
Credit for Recognised Learning
Applications for credit towards a course are assessed on an individual basis. Credit reduces the amount of learning required to complete the course and may be granted for formal education qualifications, non-formal learning from non-award programs of study and informal learning through work experiences. Further information can be found at http://futurestudents.curtin.edu.au.
Pathway to Further Study
Graduates may qualify for entry to a Bachelor Degree with Honours and some Graduate Certificates, Graduate Diplomas and Master degrees. For further details, see the University website http://curtin.edu.au.
Bachelor Degrees typically contain a series of units which may include compulsory (core), optional or elective units to cater for student preferences. They may contain a range of majors, streams and/or minors for students to choose from to pursue learning in a specialised area of study.
This course has been introduced to address a significant market demand for skills associated with the design of embedded Systems, sensors and the networks that underpin them. It encompasses computer technology, in terms of both hardware and software, as well as computer communications and networking incorporating Local Area Networks (LANs), Wide Area Networks (WANs) and sensor networks in the context of the Internet of Things.
Course Learning Outcomes
A graduate of this course can:
1. apply the theory of computer systems networking within the engineering design method, whilst remaining cognisant of network operational issues
2. define a problem and apply creative thinking to the formulation of a solution; verify and implement the solution
3. access information, evaluate and organise information relevant to computer systems networking
4. document networking information to meet technical and legal requirements; communicate concepts and technical information to lay and professional personnel in written, oral and electronic forms
5. use appropriate tools to design, analyse and verify computer systems networks and their components
6. recognise that the computer systems networking industry changes rapidly, and maintain currency via a spirit of inquiry and relevant further study
7. apply international standards, practices and conventions appropriate to computer systems networking
8. function effectively within a typical multidisciplinary and multi-cultural engineering design team as a team member, manager or team leader, recognising individual human rights
9. commit to and behave in accordance with the professional and ethical responsibilities of engineers
