This page provides academic advice & resources for students enrolled in the BInfTech.

Deciding on Your Study Plan

In BInfTech, you'll study a number of compulsory courses, with options to build your chosen areas of study through majors/minors. Depending on your study plan, you'll also have space for elective courses that allow you to expand on the majors/minors or broaden your experience in other areas.

We have provided suggested study plans for most plan options below. You're not required to follow a fixed study plan for BInfTech, but you must ensure you follow the program & course requirements for your program as linked below.

Note, if you're transitioning between pre-2021 and post-2021 programs, you'll need to complete a transition checklist as per this page: https://www.eait.uq.edu.au/students/program-structure-changes/bachelor-information-technology

Fancy Changing to Computer Science or Software Engineering?

If you've enrolled in BInfTech 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 BInfTech. 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:
