Type of institution: University/Higher Education Institution
Studying Science in addition to Computer Science will increase employment opportunities in areas such as scientific programming or scientific management. Students will participate in practical classes in our new purpose-built Sciences Teaching Facility or out in the field, ensuring that students have the skills and knowledge to meet the needs of tomorrow's employers. Our courses are taught by professionals who are world-leading researchers so the skills and knowledge students acquire can be applied to real-world challenges today and in the future. UOW double degrees aim to broaden a student's knowledge and skill base and to improve career options in competitive, increasingly interactive fields. These programs are designed to enhance a student's educational, academic and professional qualifications whilst minimising the costs of their studies.

Standard entry requirements
DOMESTIC STUDENTS - ATAR-BASED ADMISSION OPTIONS Guaranteed entry selection ranks Entry to this course can be gained with: Minimum ATAR (Australian Tertiary Admission Rank) International Baccalaureate (IB) Interstate equivalent (such as the Victorian ENTER or Queensland OP) Results in an overseas qualification deemed equivalent to Australian year 12 The minimum score for guaranteed entry (or for consideration if this course has limited places) is an ATAR-Selection Rank of 75 or an IB of 26. This includes the effect of adjustment factors. Adjustment factors, such as the subjects you are studying, the area in which you live or equity and access schemes, are taken into consideration and these will be combined with your ATAR to adjust your selection rank and make it higher than your ATAR. These adjustments used to be called bonus points. ASSUMED KNOWLEDGE AND RECOMMENDED STUDIES The University assumes students will have studied any 2 units of English.
