The Faculty of Engineering and Computer Science and the Faculty of Arts and Science have created a program of study which combines a comprehensive education in computer science and mathematics. This program resides in both Faculties. In the Faculty of Engineering and Computer Science, it is offered under the aegis of the Bachelor of/Baccalaureate in Computer Science, Computer Applications Option. According to their preferences and aspirations, students may apply either for a Bachelor of/Baccalaureate in Computer Science program, Bachelor of/Baccalaureate in Science program, or Bachelor of/Baccalaureate in Arts program. The Arts and Science offering is described in §31.200. The Computer Science program is described below.
The Computer Applications Option may be taken with a Major in Mathematics and Statistics. It provides a foundation for integrated studies in computer science and mathematics.
The mathematics component of the program includes topics that overlap with computer science, such as modelling, symbolic computation, and combinatorics, as well as the standard topics of a mathematical curriculum.
Structure of the Program
The program consists of 90 credits.
