- Details for undergraduate courses
- Honours core unit in Computer Science and Software Engineering [Bachelor of Science (Honours)]
- This unit is taken over two semesters and parts 1 and 2 must be completed to fulfil the requirements of the unit. Students can commence the unit in either semester one or semester two. Students undertake a major research project on a topic relevant to the computing discipline.
- Students are able to (1) gain experience in research methodologies and learn how to plan and execute a research investigation and (2) develop skills in problem formulation, in designing and analysing solutions and experiments, and in the presentation of research findings.
- Assessment continues into CITS4002 Computer Science and Software Engineering Research Project Part 2.
Supplementary assessment is not available in this unit except in the case of a bachelor's pass degree student who has obtained a mark of 45 to 49 overall and is currently enrolled in this unit, and it is the only remaining unit that the student must pass in order to complete their course.

- The availability of units in Semester 1, 2, etc. was correct at the time of publication but may be subject to change.
- All students are responsible for identifying when they need assistance to improve their academic learning, research, English language and numeracy skills; seeking out the services and resources available to help them; and applying what they learn. Students are encouraged to register for free online support through GETSmart; to help themselves to the extensive range of resources on UWA's STUDYSmarter website; and to participate in WRITESmart and (ma+hs)Smart drop-ins and workshops.
- Books and other material wherever listed may be subject to change. Book lists relating to 'Preliminary reading', 'Recommended reading' and 'Textbooks' are, in most cases, available at the University Co-operative Bookshop (from early January) and appropriate administrative offices for students to consult.
