All students must have a university entrance qualification, and it is strongly recommended that students have studied Mathematics at NCEA level 2.
Students with excellent achievements in NCEA and prior programming experience through the successful completion of courses and participation in competitions like STAR, NCSS or the ACM SPPC will be considered for direct entry into second-year Computer Science courses and may be eligible to participate in software development projects.
For general entry requirements see Massey University entry requirements.
