NOTE: Where the 2013 requirements for a programme differ from those previously published, care will be taken to ensure existing students are not disadvantaged.
Software development concerns the specification, design, implementation, documentation, operation, and maintenance of computer software systems. The Software Development specialisation will help you to take a systematic approach to the development of quality software, have an understanding of the software life cycle, gain an appreciation of the role of formal methods in software development, be familiar with a variety of programming languages and tools, and be able to use a wide selection of algorithms and data structures in your programming.
We list the Software Development requirements in the form of a "degree planner". Where semesters are shown they refer to the 2013 schedule.
† BSc regulation 8 requires 105 points across at least four science subjects. STAT121 will help satisfy these requirements and is strongly recommended in its own right. It also helps students keep their options open for changing to another major with the Faculty if desired.
* BSc regulation 8 requires 105 points across at least four science subjects. These elective 100 level papers should be recognised Science papers, which are all papers offered by the Faculty of Science and Engineering, all COMP, STAT and MATH papers (except MATH168), and PHIL102, PSYC102 and PSYC103.
Elective papers may be replaced by papers at a higher level.
