Project

Engage in cutting-edge research

Students in the research project stream have the opportunity to work in research labs at the forefront of technical innovation. 

Work hand in hand with other masters, PhD, and post-doctoral students and faculty members to complete a project that will provide a useful demonstration of a novel capability using existing technology. Projects may also survey an area that has high tutorial value.

This project stream is intended for students with an undergraduate degree in computer science. Up to three additional undergraduate courses, to be taken in the first two terms in the program, may be required to fill particular gaps in the student's background.

Past projects have included:
