Study Web Services and Applications and you’ll learn to revolutionize online banking or create the next evolution of social media applications — the possibilities are limitless. As a computer scientist, you’ll have expert knowledge of the interconnectivity between databases, communications networks and information retrieval to create online applications and services.
Our state-of-the-art labs for high-performance computing, networks and artificial intelligence will give you experience with the tools you will use in the field. Through labs, lectures and projects, you’ll also:
Design web-centric applications that provide intuitive customer-oriented services
Develop distributed software systems that scale to meet the demands of contemporary organizations
Investigate opportunities for the deployment of applications across multiple hardware devices and platforms
The core provides a basic and broad study of theory, mathematical basics, programming methodology, computer architecture, data structures, operating systems, and software engineering.
The Web Services and Applications option deals with the analysis, design, and implementation of services and applications delivered over the Internet. In addition to learning core computer science fundamentals, students will learn Internet computing , databases, communication networks, information retrieval, web search, distributed systems and web based systems.
We offer an honours program to computer science students with high academic standing. You may apply to the honours program once you have completed 30 credits.
University Transfers (internal/external): B+ overall, B+ math
Bacc. français: 14 overall, 14 math
International Baccalaureate (IB) diploma: 31 overall, 4 math
Course requirements for admission
CEGEP students Admission is based on applicants’ overall Math and Physics (if applicable) CRC indicated above and completion of the following classes as part of their DEC.
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 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 and physics course(s) required for their CEGEP program. Students may be eligible for exemptions/transfer credits based on course equivalencies.
Math HL preferred but SL is acceptable. SL grade requirement may vary. Science HL or SL acceptable.
University transfers and mature students
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
Honours option available in all Computer Science programs. Students may apply to the Honours program once they have completed 30 credits and have maintained a GPA of 3.00
Physics is not required for entry to Computer Science Programs, except for Computer Systems.
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 we give priority to applicants who apply by official deadlines. Late applications will be considered if places are still availablefor the fall term only.
The Co-op program gives you the chance to complete paid work terms that last 12 to 16 weeks. As a Co-op student, you will play a large role in assisting projects designed and implemented by professionals and may also:
Analyze and develop computer solutions
Design and create new software, and modify and test existing software used in a broad range of businesses and industries
Plan and implement computer security systems for database access control
Create web pages
Co-op students have completed work terms for employers such as:
Given the range of web applications that are in use today, computer science alumni have established careers in a range of economic sectors includinghealth care, communications, manufacturing, banking, retail, electrical and entertainment.
