Embedded Systems is a specified programme under the Bachelor of Computer Science and contains papers that align with the needs of the ICT industry.

Embedded Systems is available as a specified programme for the Bachelor of Computer Science (BCompSc).

To complete Embedded Systems as a specified programme for the BCompSc, students must take the following papers:

Year 1: COMPX101 or ENGEN103, COMPX102, CSMAX170, MATHS135, DATAX111 or DATAX121, ENGEN101 or MATHS165 or PHILO102, DIGIB101 or MGSYS101, and ENGEN111.

Year 2: COMPX201 or COMPX241, COMPX202 or COMPX242, COMPX203, COMPX204, COMPX222, COMPX223, CSMAX270 and ENGEE233.

Year 3: COMPX301, COMPX324, COMPX361, either (15 points from any 300 level COMPX paper and one of COMPX374, COMPX397 or HECSS363) or COMPX371 or COMPX398, COMPX349, ENGEE319 and 15 points from any subject at 200 level or above.

Note: Students intending to take COMPX371 should take the prerequisite SCIEN270 in Year 2 and defer CSMAX270 to Year 3.

Note:

There will be no new enrolments in the BCompSc with a specified programme in Embedded Systems. The Bachelor of Computer Science without a specified programme is available for new enrolments, more information can be found on the Computer Science subject. Students enrolled in this previously should consult the Division of Health, Engineering, Computing and Science for programme advice.
