Student Statistics
Overview
For a wellrounded education, students pursuing this programme will also acquire knowledge in science, including life sciences, mathematics and physics. The programme is recognised by ABET Inc., the worldrespected USbased accreditation agency, as being "substantially equivalent" to similar accredited programmes in the United States. Graduates with the Bachelor of Computing (Honours) in Computer Science degree can position themselves in a large number of exciting fields of work, including project management, knowledge engineering, software architecture, web design, digital media and security consultancy. 

The Bachelor of Computing (Computer Science) programme, BComp(CS), requires at least 160 MCs. This programme satisfies the ABET requirements for accreditation.
Students will be required to satisfy 12 MCs of Industrial Experience Requirement by doing:
Students with CAP of 4.0 or higher may opt to
replace Industry Experience Requirement by CP4101 B.Comp.
Dissertation.
Students who aim for
Honours (Highest Distinction) must pass the CP4101 BComp Dissertation.
Students with CAP of 4.0 or higher at the end of their fifth semester of
undergraduate study may opt to replace the Industry Experience Requirement by
B.Comp Dissertation (12 MCs). As with other students with CAP of 4.0 or higher,
these students may opt to replace Industry Experience Requirement by B.Comp.
Dissertation.

Footnotes:
1 CS1010 can be replaced by CS1101S Programming Methodology.
2 CS1020 and CS2010 can be replaced by CS2020 Data Structures and Algorithms Accelerated. The remaining 2 MC will be added to the Unrestricted Electives Requirements.
3 Students taking CS2103T Software Engineering must take CS2101 Effective Communication for Computing Professionals in the same semester.
4 The 24 MCs of CS modules refer to CScoded modules listed in the 10 CS Focus areas. The listing of IScoded modules in the CS focus areas provide a guide to students should they be interested in taking more related modules in the respective areas for depth. These IS modules, if taken, will be used to fulfill unrestricted electives.
5 MA1301 is waived for students with Alevel Mathematics. The 4 MC gained from the waiver should be used to read an unrestricted elective.
6 Students pursuing double degree in Computer Science and Mathematics/Applied Mathematics are recommended to replace MA1521 Calculus for Computing by MA1102R Calculus.
7 Students pursuing double degree in Computer Science and Mathematics/Applied Mathematics will take ST2131 Probability and ST2132 Mathematical Statistics in place of ST2334 Probability and Statistics.
8 Students who have not taken 'O'level Physics may replace PC1221 or PC1222 by a lifescience module.
9Students interested in Physics are recommended to read PC1221 Fundamentals of Physics I.Science modules must be either Physics, Chemistry or LifeScience modules. Science modules must be either Physics, Chemistry or LifeScience modules. Science modules must be modules from List S1 (recommended) or List S2. Please click here for the lists.
CS modules are organised into Focus Areas of coherent modules according to technical areas of study. A CS Focus Area is satisfied by completing 3 modules from the Area Primaries, with at least one module at 4000level or above. CS Foundation Modules (CFM) that appear in the Area Primaries can be counted as one of the 3 modules towards satisfying a Focus Area. In this case, a student has to read just two other modules in the Area Primaries to satisfy the Focus Area. Elective modules are grouped into the Focus Areas as a guide for indicating their related areas of study. The ten focus areas are listed below. Please click here for details about these focus areas.

Students are encouraged to read the following enrichment module:
CP3880 Advanced Technology Attachment Programme is a 12MC module. It can be used to replace 12 MCs of Unrestricted Electives to satisfy ABET requirements.
