Computing related majors in the BSc are offered in AUT's School of Computer and Mathematical Sciences
You can complete the Bachelor of Science with no major, providing broad-base qualification and the ability to select papers across several majors.
You can complete the BSc in 2 major areas or study, such as applied microbiology and food science, or Marine Biology and environmental science. Having 2 majors to your bow makes you a versatile graduate.
Students undertaking the Bachelor of Science may choose a second major, either from those available within their degree (double major) or a second major from the list of additional majors available from outside their degree. Minors are also available in these subjects. The availability of additional majors and minors will depend on timetabling and some subject restrictions,and in some cases, choosing an additional major or minor may require students to undertake extra points to complete their degree.
You take a wide-range of science papers to start with, and then build on your major(s) in years 2 and 3. You will complete a research project in your third year that involves an investigation into a scientific problem.
