English test results must be no more than two years old.

Course Information

With qualifications in both science and IT, you'll be able to pursue a career in a variety of industries, including commerce, industry, corporate IT, government or private consulting.

In this double degree, you'll have an introduction to fundamental concepts in mathematics, physics, chemistry, biology, information systems and computer programming before choosing the majors that suit your interests. You'll have access to next generation technology and state-of-the-art labs throughout your studies as you learn from some of Australia's leading researchers.

Industry and expert connections

Your final year is centred around hands-on projects, which are the core of our unique employability program. You'll gain experience with local and international industry partners with the option to engage with university research, undertake an extended fieldwork program in your major or complete an industry placement.

Such experiences will help you develop highly valued skills and attributes such as the ability to work in a team to analyse, develop and implement effective solutions to practical challenges. You will also be taught by expert academics with strong ties to their fields who may be able to assist in developing your networks and connections during your studies.

Graduate outcomes

In this emerging specialty industry, research opportunities are available in varied fields to mine data from databases. You'll find other opportunities to apply your knowledge to weather and climate simulations, population models, and business and consumer data analysis.

You'll also find opportunities in information technology designing, writing, testing, documenting and maintaining computer applications and research or analytical and development work.
