Computer science uses theoretical and mathematical foundations of computation to understand both software and hardware structure for effective and creative design.
Our state-of-the-art labs for high-performance computing, networks and artificial intelligence will give you experience with the equipment you’ll use in the field. Through labs, lectures and projects, you’ll also:
Design and create new software, and modify and test existing software used in a broad range of businesses and industries
Develop new or improve existing algorithms
Explore emerging software/hardware technologies
The student-run Software Engineering and Computer Science Student Society (SCS) organizes coding nights, algorithm practice, tutorials, social events, and networking opportunities.
United States students: A U.S. Federal Student Aid-eligible version of this program is offered. This version meets all U.S. regulations (such as no co-operative education or e-courses) for eligible programs.
Minimum cut-off averages and course requirements for admission
Quebec CEGEP: 28 overall, 26 math
Admission is based on applicants’ overall Math CRC indicated above and completion of the following classes as part of their DEC: MATH 103 or 201-NYA and 203 or 201-NYB and 105 or 201-NYC
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 as indicated above and preferably a minimum of 24 in math required for their CEGEP program.
A-levels: At least two A-level exams AB, B in math or
AS-levels: At least 4 AS-level exams with equivalent results or
BTEC: Level 3 Diploma or Extended Diploma in a related subject area with equivalent results
Students without A-level math may be admissible based on AS-level or iGCSE/GCSE/O-Level exam results. Students should include all their exam results from iGCSE (or equivalent) onwards to support their application.
Minimum cut-off averages should be used as indicators. The cut-off data may change depending on the applicant pool. Applicants who meet the stated minimum requirements are not guaranteed admission to these programs.
We consider complete applications year round and give priority to applicants who apply by official deadlines.
March 1 is the deadline to apply for fall term entry. International students are encouraged to apply by February 1 to allow sufficient time for CAQ and study permit application processing.
Late applications will be considered if places are still available. Please check program availability for the term, before you start your application.
November 1 is the deadline to apply for winter term entry. International students are encouraged to apply by September 1 to allow sufficient time for CAQ and study permit application processing.
Not all programs are available for winter term entry. Please check program availability for the term, before you start your application.
We reserve the right to close admission to a program at any time after the official deadline without prior notice.
After your degree
Given the range of applications in use today, computer science alumni have established careers in a range of sectors includinghealth care, communications, manufacturing, banking, retail, electronics and entertainment.
Bachelor of Computer Science
How software developer Ghazal Zamani found her passion as a student.
Without computer hardware there would be no smart phones, DVD players and digital recorders or computerized medical devices. As a computer engineer, your knowledge of computer architecture, digital electronics, circuits and digital communication will lead to new innovations or bring about another information revolution.
