  • A pass in the Aptitude Test conducted by SLIIT.

Students may also apply with pending Advance Level Results.

  • This course provides coverage of aspects of modern computing and computer networks.
  • It covers fundamental programming and security knowledge
  • as well as specializing in network programming and other aspects of distributed computing.
  • The course uses Python as a tool for learning programming.
  • Linux skills are taught throughout the course and emphasis is placed on learning the basics before moving onto advanced topics.
  • Graduates from the course will have sound knowledge of computer systems and processes involved in software development and maintenance.
  • This is to prepare students for the areas of ICT found to be most in demand and for positions that are most difficult to fill.
  • Curtin works together closely with industry partners to fine tune the course and provides placement opportunities to good students in the final year.
  • On completion of the three-year degree, students who have performed well will be eligible to complete an extra year of study to obtain an honours qualification, BH-SCNCE Bachelor of Science (Honours).
  • The research focus of an Honours degree provides a pathway for career advancement at a higher level than the base degree.
  • Students who perform well in this course can apply for transfer to the Bachelor of Computing course, although acceptance is not automatic.
  • Apply computer networking concepts to develop solutions and protect systems related to information technology
  • Evaluate information technologies in a manner that is appropriate for a given problem and think critically and creatively to generate innovative and optimum theoretical and practical solutions
  • Identify, evaluate and synthesise information from a range of technology sources to optimise the process of network design and implementation
  • Document information technology activities and artefacts and communicate them in written and oral form to both technical and non-technical audiences and communicate effectively in ways appropriate to the audience and purpose
  • Effectively use new and existing technologies, recognising their advantages and limitations
  • Sustain intellectual curiosity by updating their knowledge, engage in continuous training and research, and take control of their own learning and development
  • Recognise and apply IEEE/ACM/ACS standards and best practice in process software design and development
  • Contribute to society using technology in an ethical, legal, and socially responsible manner
