Computer Science

Computer science plays a leading role in modern society, shaping our abilities and our future. From streaming music to planning a mission to Mars, the application of computer science offers innovative approaches to new challenges.

Think big as you explore the world of computer science while engaging in one of two focused program streams in Business or Science. The Business Focus provides a path to the Entrepreneurship Certificate from the Faculty of Business, whereas the Science Focus emphasizes Science and Environmental Science electives.

Experience high-tech labs and classrooms, access to a 240-core high performance computer Linux cluster, a stunning 3-D virtual reality lab, and learn about the latest advances in game programming, mobile computing, health informatics applications, big data, and cloud computing.

Your first year academic experience will depend on whether you've enrolled in the Business or Science stream, and if you've chosen to pursue our co-operative education program.

 

Business Focus (required courses)

  • Computer Programming I & II

  • Basics of Accounting

  • Basics of Management

  • Calculus I

  • Discrete Mathematics

  • One-credit combination of English, History, or Philosophy

Science Focus (required courses)

  • Computer Programming I & II

  • Calculus I

  • Discrete Mathematics

  • One-credit combination of English, History, or Philosophy

If you're pursuing our co-operative education program, you may have a formal work period assignment in the summers after first and second year (Computer Science 1990, 2990) at the discretion of the Chair of the department. Otherwise, formal work period assignments do not begin until winter term of third year.

Co-op Placement

During your undergrad you will have the opportunity to participate in our co-operative education program to gain rewarding experiences in the industry, acquire practical skills and earn an income to finance your education. We have placed over 700 students with industry partners including IBM, Environment Canada, RIM, Atomic Energy of Canada, the Canadian Grain Commission, CIBC and more.

 

Student Mentorship

We have a full-time faculty member who is dedicated to mentoring first and second year students’ programming skills. This resource is particularly useful if you have limited experience in computer programming and would like one-on-one time with an expert in the field outside of your class and lab time.

 

Specialization

We offer a unique Game Programming Specialization to all Computer Science majors. This specialization teaches you the intricacies of animation, two and three dimensional graphics, gameplay and much more while you develop single, multiplayer and mobile games.

 

Accessible Faculty

Our department is small enough to provide you with direct access to the professors, and individual access to advanced computing equipment. Our faculty is active in its research, and committed to balancing theoretical information with hands-on opportunities. Projects and research papers are regularly integrated into our undergraduate courses.
