    Course Summary

    Computer Science is one of the world’s fastest growing and (at higher educational levels like this) best paid fields. Industries all over Canada and beyond eagerly snatch up Master’s level Computer Science graduates, and those who complete programs like this with top honours often step into the most sought after roles in organisations all over the world.

    The University of Dalhousie’s Master of Computer Science (MCSc) degree will see you studying under some of the most renowned professors in the field, learning business and industrial applications for computer technology, such as Social Computing, IoT,  Bioinformatics, Algorithm Creation and Computer Security.

    In fact, you will have the opportunity to participate in some of the university’s three main areas of advanced CS research:

    • human-computer interaction and visualization
    • systems & networks
    • big data analytics and machine learning

    You should also have a thought as to whether you would like to stay on to participate in the Faculty of Computer Science’s PhD program.

    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.
