Computer Science Papers at Tauranga (2018)
Computer Science involves the study of all aspects of computers: their technology, algorithms and programming, underlying theory, and their application.
Computer Science is available as a major for the Bachelor of Computing and Mathematical Sciences with Honours, the Bachelor of Science, and the Bachelor of Science (Technology). Computer Science may also be included as a second major or minor in other undergraduate degrees, subject to the approval of the Faculty in which the student is enrolled.
To complete Computer Science as a single major for the BCMS(Hons), BSc, or the BSc(Tech), students must gain 135 points from papers listed for Computer Science, including 105 points above 100 level, and 45 points above 200 level. Students must complete COMPX101, COMPX102, COMPX201, COMPX202, COMPX203, COMPX204, COMPX361 and at least 15 points from List A. Students in the BCMS(Hons) will also need to take at least 60 points in the subject of Computer Science at 500 level, including COMP520.
To complete Computer Science as part of a double major for the BCMS(Hons), BSc or other undergraduate degree, students must gain 120 points from papers listed for Computer Science, including 90 points above 100 level, and 30 points above 200 level. Students must complete COMPX101, COMPX102, COMPX201, COMPX202, COMPX203, COMPX204, COMPX361 and 15 points from List A. Students in the BCMS(Hons) will also need to take at least 60 points in the subject of their first major at 500 level including COMP520 if Computer Science is the first major.
To complete a minor in Computer Science, students must complete 60 points from the papers listed for the Computer Science major, including at least 30 points above 100 level, and including COMPX201.
Note: Students who commenced a major in Computer Science in 2017 or prior are encouraged to contact the Faculty of Computing and Mathematical Sciences for programme advice.

Code Paper Title Occurrence / Location COMPX251 Information Discovery 18A (Hamilton), 18A (Tauranga), 18B (Hamilton) & 18S (Hamilton) This paper enables students to widen their experience of computer software using an intensive laboratory programme. Students select from a variety of themes, including video editing, website design, digital library development, computer game construction, animation and 3D modelling.
Code Paper Title Occurrence / Location COMP315 Information Systems Development 18B (Hamilton) & 18B (Tauranga) Students address a real world problem by performing systems planning, analysis, design and implementation. Working in groups, they submit reports, conduct reviews, develop prototypes, and make formal presentations at appropriate milestones. COMP321 Practical Data Mining 18B (Hamilton) & 18B (Tauranga) This paper is a practical introduction to data mining. It covers important aspects of the data mining process such as feature selection, model building, parameter tuning and final evaluation. COMP325 Human-Computer Interaction 18B (Hamilton) & 18B (Tauranga) An introduction to the theory and practice of human-computer interaction, including the interface development process in the system life-cycle, software tools and architectures to support modern interface and software usability. COMP329 Database Systems 18A (Hamilton) & 18A (Tauranga) This paper will focus on practical aspects of designing, creating and maintaining a database system. COMP333 Web Applications Development 18A (Hamilton) & 18A (Tauranga) A paper on the design, development and programming of web document applications. COMP390 Directed Study 18A (Hamilton), 18B (Hamilton) & 18C (Hamilton) A directed study involving the design, implementation and testing of the solution to a hardware and/or software engineering problem and production of a formal report.
Prescriptions for the PhD
The Doctor of Philosophy is a three year research-based degree in which students undertake a programme of approved and supervised research that leads to a thesis which critically investigates an approved topic of substance and significance, demonstrates expertise in the methods of research and scholarship, displays intellectual independence and makes a substantial original contribution to the subject area concerned, and is of publishable quality.
Code Paper Title Occurrence / Location COMP900 Computer Science PhD Thesis 18C (Hamilton) & 18C (Tauranga) No description available.
