School:Carleton University
Faculty:School of Computer Science
Degree:Bachelor; Honours
Field of Study:Computer Science
Description:Computers and computer systems play a central role in business, communication, science, entertainment and medicine. As the range of computer applications continues to expand, so does the demand for computer scientists. Computer Science is an ever-changing discipline that studies the theory, design and implementation of computer applications and systems. You will learn to use computing and information technology to help solve the problems that we face in business, science and society today and those that we will face tomorrow.

The Honours Computer Science program at Carleton is organized into diverse streams so that you can develop a particular expertise. Our specialty streams allow you the opportunity to concentrate on one important area of computer science and our multidisciplinary streams give you the chance to examine areas of increasing opportunity for computer scientists. All streams share a common core of computer science courses. No matter which stream you choose, you will gain expertise in all the fundamentals, including programming, algorithms, software engineering, databases and user interfaces. You may also choose to take the Honours degree without a stream, or to start without a stream and add one later.
