The Department of Computer Science offers programs leading to bachelor's and honours bachelor's degrees, as well as graduate programs, in Computer Science.

To continue in a Computer Science Program, students must successfully complete all the required first year courses in their major program by the end of their second year of full time registration.

To continue in a Computer Science Program, students must successfully complete all the required first year courses in their major program by the end of their second year of full time registration.

Students may choose either a Business Focus or a Science focus for their Computer Science program.

Note about the Co­operative Program:
Students applying for first ­year admission to Co­operative Computer Science will be judged for admission on the basis of academic credentials normally submitted to the Office of Admissions and Recruitment in the admission process. For more advanced applicants, university academic performance will also be considered.

Departmental recommendations for work-term placements will be made in the first week of each academic term which precedes a work term, and will be based on performance in the program to that point. Note that the first work period is optional, but that a student must obtain a positive recommendation from the department by the first required work term to remain registered in the program.

The University will provide employment counselling and contacts with participating employers for each student, prior to each work period, and will make all reasonable effort to obtain placement. However, the achievement of employment is the result of a resumé and interview process similar to that required for permanent employment of computer professionals. The ultimate success in placement depends on the employer/employee interaction.

The programs have a Business focus and a science focus. Students must choose one at the time of initial registration. for help in making this choice, contact the Chair of the Department.
