BCompSc Computation Arts and Computer Science Joint Major
Bachelor of Computer Science (BCompSc)
Why study Computer Science and Computation Arts?
Stimulate the senses. Engage the mind. When you study Computation Arts, you become a digital artist, using algorithms and computational theory to create interactive multimedia that breaks new audio-visual ground.
This joint major gives students the flexibility to combine a traditional computer science degree with a non-traditional field. Our state-of-the-art labs for 3D graphics, high-performance computing and artificial intelligence will give you experience with the equipment you’ll use in the field. Through labs, lectures and projects, you’ll also:
- Investigate programming paradigms as they relate to digital art and design
- Learn the techniques and conceptual strategies central to 3D digital production
- Use computer systems to process, synthesize, and manipulate digitized representations of sound
A Bachelor of Computer Science degree takes a minimum of three or four years (90 – 120 credits) of full-time study, depending on your academic background.
The core provides a basic and broad study of theory, mathematical basics, programming methodology, computer architecture, data structures, operating systems, and software engineering.
You must meet Concordia’s minimum admission requirements.
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.
Students must submit a portfolio with their application.
