Semester 1UWA (Perth)Face to face
Details for undergraduate courses
  • Honours option in Computer Science and Software Engineering [Bachelor of Science (Honours)]
This unit explores current research topics in computational modelling. Students develop skills to identify problems, formulate solutions and conduct further research in open questions in this domain.
Students are able to (1) communicate effectively to present computational models to address a given research hypothesis and qualify the limitations of these models; (2) analyse and discuss current open research topics in the field of computational modelling; (3) explain the concepts and technologies used in the field of computational modelling; and (4) design, apply and analyse relevant technologies to solve problems in the field of computational modelling.
Indicative assessments in this unit are as follows: (1) project; (2) notebook; and (3) two in-class tests (30% each). Further information is available in the unit outline.

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 via the Booktopia Textbook Finder, which has the functionality to search by course code, course, ISBN and title, and may also be posted or available at the appropriate school's administrative offices. Where texts are listed in the unit description above, an asterisk (*) indicates that the book is available in paperback.
