Computer science at the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science combines the study of computation and information processing fundamentals with their application in the world around us. Computer scientists build fast, reliable, scalable and secure software systems to organize and analyze information. The honours curriculum comprises advanced topics in databases, artificial intelligence, computer graphics, security, distributed computing and algorithm design, culminating in an honours project. 

This program teaches graduates how to use their creative and innovative talents to conceive, design and implement software systems. The Extended French Stream (EFS) is now available to all students in the Computer Science program. Our degrees are very flexible and include options, minors and a major, which can be used to explore connections between computer science and many other fields of study.

This program is offered in English and in French. 

Compulsory courses are offered in English and French.

The table below includes only discipline-specific courses. Please refer to the Academic Regulations for information on including a minor to your degree.

This program can be chosen only as a second study module as part of a 120-unit bachelor’s degree that allows a minor.

Direct admission is not possible.
