From bioinformatics to social networking, computer science drives innovation in nearly every area of our lives. But it's more than just data and code—it’s also about imagination. How much farther can we go? What kind of impact will we have along the way?

Western’s flagship programs in big data, game development, cybersecurity, financial modelling, and more will send your career in directions you might never imagine. Outside the classroom, you can develop your entrepreneurial and communication skills for start-up projects, or work one-on-one with faculty on a funded summer research project.

You can complete this program as part of a Bachelor or Honours Bachelor degree. Registration in the honours degree usually begins in the second year, but admission may be gained in the third or fourth year if you meet requirements.
