    Course Summary

    Computer Science is one of the most in-demand skills in the world. Organisations in virtually all industries across the Private, Public and Not for Profit sectors are hiring Computer Science graduates in record numbers. An MSc in Computer Science from Concordia University prepares students to begin high profile career in computer science, possibly in abstract research or in a management or leadership role at a commercial company.

    Demand is even higher for specialists, and you can participate in any of the university’s cutting edge CS research programs, including:

    • 3D graphics and computer gaming
    • ad hoc networks
    • artificial Intelligence
    • bioinformatics
    • combinatorial algorithms
    • computer networks and protocols
    • data mining
    • databases
    • distributed systems
    • image processing
    • knowledge based systems
    • mathematical programming
    • mobile computing and wireless networks
    • multimedia computing
    • natural language processing
    • numerical analysis and scientific computing
    • parallel algorithms and architectures
    • pattern recognition
    • requirement engineering
    • semantics of programming languages
    • semantics web
    • software architecture
    • software comprehension and maintenance
    • software measurement
    • symbolic and algebraic computation
    • user interface
    • visualization techniques

    If you are changing direction after starting in another career area, you will possess valuable work experience and professional awareness. Many employers actively seek candidates with these benefits. Our network of contacts, a dedicated employability service and a reputation in the legal profession mean we also have an outstanding track-record of finding students legal employment.Many employers favour GDL students in an increasingly competitive legal job market. Through studying another degree subject, you will have gained many transferable skills. By taking the conversion route into law, you are showing motivation and determination by choosing law at a later stage than some others. This looks good to employers.
