In the Faculty of Computer Science (FCS), you don't just learn to program or install the next generation of smartphone, you actually develop the skills and knowledge to go beyond that - to be an inventor or innovator.

At FCS, we have a variety of course and research topics, exploring everything from network security and privacy issues to how people actually interact with technology. Here, you learn in an environment where leading-edge technology takes place on a daily basis; where small class sizes, hands-on labs and successful Co-op placements will introduce you to a whole new world.

Be on a first-name basis with your computer science profs, many of whom teach first-year classes. When they’re not teaching, or conducting life-changing research, faculty members often participate in the social events put on by our student societies. Our students love the tight-knit, family feel that comes with learning and socializing alongside our staff and profs.
