Computer Science (MCompSc)
Master of Computer Science (MCompSc)
The Master of Computer Science provides students with an opportunity to broaden their base of knowledge and increase their research capabilities in a specific area of computer science. The program should appeal to students of related disciplines, such as mathematics and electrical and computer engineering, who have successfully completed core courses in computer science. It is ideal for those in business and industry who wish to gain a solid education in computer science and/or software engineering at the theoretical and practical levels. The MCompSc consists of coursework and research, culminating in the presentation of a thesis. Graduates can pursue their training at the Doctoral level (PhD), the department’s highest degree, and attain the greatest possible expertise in their chosen fields.
