Basic computer science skills are the perfect complement to any degree program at Concordia. The Minor in Computer Science is designed to meet the growing demand for computer-literate professionals, and may offer students more career opportunities after graduation.
Admission is based on applicants’ overall CRC plus preferably a minimum of 24 in mathematics, and completion of the following classes as part of their DEC. Missing courses will be added to the program.
For all BCompSc programs (except the Computer Systems Option): MATH 103 or 201-NYA and 203 or 201-NYB and 105 or 201-NYC
STUDENTS COMPLETING A THREE-YEAR TECHNICAL DEC
Students completing a three-year technical DEC in a related field may also be eligible for admission without the specified profile provided they achieve a minimum overall CRC indicated below and preferably a minimum of 24 in math and physics course(s) required for their Cegep program. Missing prerequisites will be added to their program. Students may be eligible for exemptions/transfer credits based on course equivalencies.
UNIVERSITY TRANSFER APPLICANTS AND MATURE STUDENT
Applicants who meet the minimum entry requirements are encouraged to apply and may still be considered for admission, provided they have completed the majority of the prerequisite courses. Transfer credits may be considered on a course-by-course basis.
Prerequisites for university transfer applicants
The following courses are required in addition to the program and may be completed at another post-secondary institution prior to admission or at Concordia.
For all BCompSc programs (except the Computer Systems Option): Calculus I and II, Linear Algebra
Engineering students are able to add a minor in another discipline once they have completed at least 21 credits and if they maintain a GPA of 2.70. Refer to the Undergraduate Calendar for details.
Minimum cut-off averages
Applicants who meet the minimum cut-off averages are not guaranteed admission. Grades in Math and Physics (Chemistry, if Physics not offered) should normally meet the minimum cut-offs. IB Math and Physics (HL preferred) should be 5 for all programs, except 6 for Aerospace.
