  • ANU College ANU College of Engineering and Computer Science
  • Course subject Computer Science

This course forms the honours year of the Bachelor of Computer Science (Honours) program. It consists of a coursework component and a project component, of equal weight. The coursework component involves courses in advanced aspects of the computing discipline, which in recent years have been drawn from: architecture of parallel systems, artificial intelligence, computational logic, algorithms, object oriented databases, programs for parallel computer systems, formal aspects of software engineering, software engineering project, document technologies and automated reasoning. The project component involves a substantial individual project under detailed academic supervision. A formal thesis is submitted (nominally 10,000 words), and a seminar is presented.

Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:

Upon completion of the research project, the student will be able to:

  • Prepare and present a short technical seminar
  • Write a literature survey
  • Undertake and complete a research project under supervision
  • Write a thesis describing the results of research work
  • They will also meet the individual skills objectives of the courses that they studied.

Indicative Assessment

The coursework and project components carry equal weight, because it is felt that are of equal importance. The individual courses studied have their own assessment rationale. The research project is assessed on the thesis and the seminar. The seminar tests objective 1; and the thesis objectives 2, 3 and 4; as listed above.

The ANU uses Turnitin to enhance student citation and referencing techniques, and to assess assignment submissions as a component of the University's approach to managing Academic Integrity. While the use of Turnitin is not mandatory, the ANU highly recommends Turnitin is used by both teaching staff and students.
