|We’ll prepare you for a career in Information Technology (IT), an industry that is transforming our world and workplaces. You’ll study data structures, operating systems, database systems, industry-standard programming languages, software engineering and user interfaces. You can take specialized courses in object-orientation, computer graphics, intelligent systems, computer networks, advanced Internet, expert systems, robotics, parallel computing, and compiler construction. The B.Sc. Honours program offers two concentrations: Software Engineering focuses on programming and systems analysis for application development. Intelligent Systems focuses on research related to making computers behave like humans. With small classes and a tight-knit student community, you interact with dedicated faculty and other students in an effective learning environment incorporating theory and practice.
The Computer Science Co-op and Internship options allow you to combine paid work with your degree to give you valuable hands-on experience in the IT industry. Internship you apply for eight-, 12-, or 16-month work terms (70 per cent major average required). Co-op programs are typically completed in four and one-half years, with three four-month work terms included as a part of your degree. You’ll complete three academic terms prior to beginning your first work placement.
