Fancy changing to computer science or software engineering?

If you've enrolled in the Bachelor of Information Technology and after a semester or two you've decided it's not for you, there is some flexibility to change to Bachelor of Computer Science (BCompSc) or Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (BE) majoring in Software Engineering.

Many courses are shared between these programs, only requiring that you take additional courses to satisfy the program requirements.

For example, in Software Engineering (BE), you could choose Engineering-focused first-year courses as electives in the Bachelor of Information Technology. Upon satisfying the entry requirements (subject to satisfactory grades), you can proceed to the 2nd year of Software Engineering (BE).

Refer to those programs on my.UQ for further information.
