Computing Course Substitutions

Please note that the courses listed below will not be scheduled for 2024. Unless stated otherwise, the substitutions below are approved by the School of Computing Associate Director for Education for 2024 only, they will not carry over to future years.

Important Note: Unless otherwise specified, course-level prerequisites must be satisfied before attempting approved substitutions.

Undergraduate Courses

- COMP2410
* Information Systems Major – Students may substitute this course with an additional COMP course from the bottom list specified in the Major, or COMP3310.

- COMP2420
* Students must now enrol into COMP2400.
* For AENSE students only -  Students who need to complete COMP2400 as part of their core degree requirements will be able to select COMP2610 Information Theory in the list requiring students to complete 6 units out of the possible three courses listed (including ENGN1217 and ENGN1218).

- COMP3120 and COMP3610
* Software Development Major - Students may substitute these courses with COMP4130 and COMP4600 (i.e. 12 units from the bottom list) or 6 units from the bottom list and COMP3300.

- COMP3610
* See COMP3120 for Software Development Major.
* Computer Systems Major – Students may complete COMP4712 to replace COMP3610.
* Theoretical Computer Science Specialisation – Please refer to the 2024 Year rule for this specialisation. Students may complete COMP4712 in the top list and COMP4011 to the bottom list to satisfy the requirements of this Specialisation.

- COMP4350
* Substitutions for students completing the HCC Major, Minor & Spec need to be given by the Program Convener on a case by case basis.

- COMP4540
* Software Engineering (ASENG) students must now enrol into COMP4550.

- COMP4630
* Theoretical Computer Science Specialisation - Please refer to the 2024 year rule for this Specialisation. Students may complete COMP4011 from the bottom list and COMP4712 from the top list.   

- COMP4660
* No substitution required for the Machine Learning specialisation, Advanced Intelligent Systems and Information Systems Majors, as alternate courses are already available within the sub-plan.
* Students completing the Human-Centred Computing sub-plans will need to make a case to the Program Convenor for a course substitution on a case-by-case basis.

- COMP4810
* AACOM Students who would have completed COMP4810 and now required to complete COMP4500. To enrol into COMP4500, AACOM students must have complete COMP2120 but other specified prerequisites will be waived for this cohort in 2024 only.

- MATH3342
* Theoretical Computer Science Specialisation - MATH4343 (course has been re-coded).


Postgraduate Courses

- COMP6340 
* No substitution required, as COMP6331 is still running and is the appropriate alternative.

- COMP6361
* Computational Foundations Specialisation – Please refer to the 2024 year rule for this Specialisation. Students may complete COMP8011 as an option in the top list.  
* Computer Systems Specialisation - Please refer to the 2024 year rule for this Specialisation. Students may complete COMP8712 as an option in the top list.

- COMP6420
*Students must now enrol into COMP6240.  

- COMP6719
* Student may substitute this course with COMP6300.

- COMP8110
* MCOMP students undertaking the Professional Computing Specialisation enrol into ENGN8100 (please apply for a permission code via the CECC portal) and the course will count as one of your COMP courses.  Other MCOMP students looking to take this course outside of the Specialisation must note that ENGN8100 will be counted as one of your University Electives, not as a COMP course (as there are other available COMP courses for you to select to meet your requirements).

- COMP8350
* Substitutions for students completing the HCC Spec need to be given by the program convener on a case by case basis.

- COMP8910
* Graduate Diploma of Applied Data Analytics (DADAN) students may take COMP8430 in order to complete within 1 year.
There will be a separate online COMP8910 tutorial for the distance-education Applied Data Analytics students only to enrol into.

- COMP8420
* No substitution required for the Machine Learning specialisation, Data Science Specialisation or for students enrolled in the Mater of Applied Data Analytics program, as alternate courses are already available.
* Students completing the Human-Centred Computing sub-plans will need to make a case to the Program Convenor for a course substitution on a case-by-case basis.

- COMP8670
* Computational Foundations Specialisation - Please refer to the 2024 year rule for this Specialisation. Students may complete COMP8011 as an option in the top list.

- MATH6203
* Computational Foundations Specialisation - MATH8343 (course has been re-coded).  

STAT6026
* DADAN students may take STAT8130. 

- STAT6030 
* DADAN and MADAN students may take STAT8130 (recoded from STAT6030) or STAT6039.

- STAT6038
* Students may take STAT7038 (recoded from STAT6038).
