The Queen's School of Computing offers a graduate program that is unique in its quality, diversity, innovation and reach. Research projects span traditional and innovative computer science. For example, one team is designing wireless networks of tiny sensors located deep below the surface of the ocean to study that largely unknown world. Another group is developing techniques to increase the accuracy and reduce the discomfort of medical processes. Some students are discovering properties of certain computers that are radically different from the ones we have today. Others are building organic interfaces for humans to communicate with computers. We are finding methods to make databases more secure, software more reliable and computers more intelligent.

There are three patterns within the Master's program in the School of Computing: research-based, project-based and course-based. The majority of students enrol in the research-based option, which is typically completed in less than two years and is fully funded (i.e., students receive financial support and avoid accruing student debt). Project-based and course-based patterns are also available, which are typically completed in less time and are not funded.
