General

Program Description

We offer a solid Computer Science education in a Liberal Arts environment. We also integrate into our curriculum real-world experience including our co-operative education program and access to Undergraduate Capstone Open Source Projects. We are active in several research areas and we offer both a research-intensive or course-based Master’s programme as well as opportunities for undergraduate students to get involved in cutting-edge research.

Solid Computer Science Education

We offer a solid and complete Computer Science education (Honours, Major, Minor). In addition, we offer interdisciplinary programmes (such as BAIT/Information Technology), a co-op option, and a number of certificates.

Research

We are active in a number of research areas, including theoretical computer science, formal software engineering, and image processing. We offer good opportunities for undergraduate students to be involved in cutting-edge research under USRA scholarships or similar.

Did you know?

  • Our students have access to various projects thus obtaining real experience by building a substantial software system as part of a team distributed all over Canada.
  • Our co-op education program combines a student’s academic program with integrated work experiences through full-time work terms and regular academic sessions. The work terms are designed to present the students with the opportunity to blend theory and practice and to gain work experience.
  • We are operating in a Liberal Arts environment: It is easy to combine other Majors (particularly Math and Physics) and Minors with your CS degree.
