First year indicative tuition fees for undergraduate courses (domestic students)

You are viewing indicative tuition fee information for domestic students. If you are an international student click here to calculate indicative tuition fees for your course.

We are unable to display fee information for the selected course at this time. Please visit our Fees Calculator to view the cost of undergraduate courses and units. Indicative tuition fee information for WAAPA VET courses can also be viewed on the Fees Calculator.

Two kinds of domestic tuition fees are explained below. Identify which indicative domestic tuition fee may be applicable to you.

Commonwealth Supported Place

Under this arrangement, the Australian Government contributes towards your tuition fees and you are responsible for the remaining tuition fees, called your 'student contribution'.

You are eligible to be Commonwealth Supported if you are studying:

  • a Bachelor's degree;
  • an Associate Diploma;
  • an Honours degree; or
  • selected Commonwealth Government Supported postgraduate courses.

You must also satisfy ONE of the following criteria:

  • You are an Australian Citizen.
  • You hold a Permanent Humanitarian visa.
  • You are a New Zealand Citizen and you are living in Australia whilst studying.
  • You hold an Australian Permanent Residency visa and you are living in Australia whilst studying.

Please note that eligibility for a Commonwealth Supported rate of fees does not determine your eligibility for a Higher Education Loan Program (HELP) loan. For further details and to obtain a more comprehensive indication of fees, please use the Fees Calculator.

Domestic Tuition Fee

Domestic tuition fees (unsubsidised full fee amount) will be applicable to you if you are not eligible for a Commonwealth Supported Place.

Domestic tuition fees also apply to non-award courses (courses or programs that do not lead to a higher education award, but are studied for general interest, professional purposes, or to gain entry to a degree program through an alternative pathway). More about non-award courses.

Course Main Navigation

 

Bachelor of Information Technology

This course structure contains information about the units which comprise the course as well as the credit points required to successfully complete it.

The Bachelor of Information Technology degree is a 360 credit point three year full-time award which may be studied in part-time mode. May be studied online.

The degree has three main components:

a) a foundation program of eight units

b) a Major program consisting of eight units in a specialized area (listed above)

c) a supplementary program consisting of eight units comprising

  • a second Major from the School of Computer and Security Science (students are recommended to follow this option)

Or

  • Supporting Major from outside the School

OR

  • an Elective program of eight units

GENERAL RULES

Whatever pattern students choose, it is required that:

  • normally no more than 12 of the units (180 credit points) studied should be at first year level
  • normally four units (60 credit points) should be at third year level



Year One
All students enrolled in the Bachelor of Information Technology study the following foundation units:

UnitDescription Points
CSG1132Communicating in an IT Environment 15
CSP1150Programming Principles 15
ENS1161Computer Fundamentals 15
CSI1241Systems Analysis 15
CSG1105Applied Communications 15
CSI1101Computer Security 15
CSG1102Operating Systems 15
CSG1207Systems and Database Design 15
 


Year Two / Year Three Units
In the second year, students embark on their Major programs. Major programs consist of eight units (120 credit points) of study taken over two years. Students may complete one or two Major programs within the School of Computer and Security Science. If two majors from within the School of Computer and Security Science are selected, unless undertaking the Work Integrated Learning Program, students must choose to complete a project sequence consisting of CSG2344 Project Methods and Professionalism and CSG3303 Applied IT Project within one major only. Students complete two electives, at least one of which must be at level 3000, selected in conjunction with their Course Coordinator, in lieu of the project in their second major. Where an overlap in the two majors results in fewer than 240 credit points, substitute units must be approved by your Course Coordinator. A minimum of 210 credit points must be directly relevant to the major areas of study Students who have achieved a course weighted average of 65% at the end of second year (240 credit points) and achieved a Credit grade or better in CSG2344 Project Methods and Professionalism may apply to participate in an industry based full-year project. These students should complete CSG3305 Project 2 in lieu of an elective unit. Elective programmes should be selected in consultation with your Course Coordinator, and students interested in participating in the Work Integrated Learning program (see below) should preserve their electives until late in the course.



WORK INTEGRATED LEARNING Students in this course have the opportunity to seek a Work Integrated Learning placement with and industry partner equivalent to one semester of fulltime study. Students should initially consult with their Course Coordinator at the commencement of their second year regarding Work Integrated Learning processes, timelines and requirements. Such placements are available to students who have: ? Successfully completed any prerequisite units, ? successfully completed at least two thirds of the requirements towards the degree and, ? have a Weighted average mark (WAM) of 65% or higher across their course, or ? have a WAM of 70% or higher for the two semesters preceding their application. Students who meet these criteria and who wish to participate in Work Integrated Learning must apply in writing to their Course Coordinator no later than the end of their second year of study. Students should seek the advice of their Course Coordinator as to appropriateness of pursuing the Work Integrated Learning option within their course structure and also as to their eligibility to be considered. Selection will be based on academic performance, the application and a formal interview process (the interview process typically involves an ECU staff member to begin with and the industry host before the placement is finalised). Successful applicants for Work Integrated Learning must enroll in and complete the requirements for CSI3345 Work Experience Project. This is a 60 credit point unit and represents a full semester's study load. Students are advised NOT to enroll in any additional units while taking the Work Experience Project unit. Students should also note that failure to successfully complete CSI3455 could necessitate completing CSG3303 + 3 remaining units instead, which could add one or two extra semesters to the course duration. Students undertaking a single or double major will enrol in CSI3345 Work Experience Project in place of CSG3303 Applied IT Project + 3 electives and/or approved unit substitutions. Students should ensure that they have sufficient electives or appropriate units for substitution towards the end of their course to make the Work Integrated Learning placement viable within their course structure.
