Faculty of Science - Computer Science

The Specialization in Computer Science leads to a Computer Science degree that is accredited by the Computer Science Accreditation Council, the academic arm of the Canadian Information Processing Society. This specialization, in combination with the department's Minor in Software Engineering, leads to degree that is accredited by CSAC as a Software Engineering degree.

Completion of first-year requirements, including the following courses with a mark of at least 60%:

0.5 course from: Computer Science 1025A/B, Computer Science 1026A/B or Engineering Science 1036A/B (in each case with a mark of at least 65%);

0.5 course from: Computer Science 1027A/B or Computer Science 1037A/B (in either case with a mark of at least 65%);

1.0 course from: Applied Mathematics 1201A/B, Calculus 1000A/B, Calculus 1301A/B, Calculus 1500A/B, Calculus 1501A/B, Mathematics 1600A/B, Numerical and Mathematical Methods 1411A/B, Numerical and Mathematical Methods 1412A/B, Numerical and Mathematical Methods 1414A/B; or the former Applied Mathematics 1411A/B, the former Applied Mathematics 1412A/B, the former Applied Mathematics 1414A/B, the former Applied Mathematics 1413.
