    Course Summary

    Computer Science is a thriving field, and employers need all of the Master’s level graduates they can find, both in Canada and around the world. Graduate employment of CS specialists is high in every industry and throughout all sectors of the economy, and a graduate from a well-recognised university like McMaster will have their pick of many excellent positions.

    McMaster University’s Master of Science (MSc) degree in Computer Science is a thesis-based program where you will not just learn bit also conduct an intensive research program of your own. You’ll graduate prepared to solve challenging problems in a wide range of different industries and contexts, or to further push the boundaries of the field.

    You’ll learn in a cross-disciplinary manner from industry leaders and researchers in engineering, the natural sciences, business, management, the social sciences, health science and of course maths and number theory. Where you take that education is all up to you.

    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.

    This degree program is typically delivered over 1 year of full time study.

    You’ll study 3 broad categories of modules as well as a range of interdisciplinary electives. The main categories are:

    • Theory of computation and mathematics of computing
    • Software and its engineering
    • Computer systems and applications

    Modules Include:

    • Advanced Databases List D
    • Algorithms and Complexity List E
    • Continuous Optimization
    • Digital Systems Design Mechatronics
    • Distributed Computer Systems
    • Distributed Computing List E
    • Human Computer Interfaces
    • Information Security List E
    • Introduction to Machine Learning List E
    • Performance Analysis of Computer Systems
    • Real-Time Systems and Computer Game Applications

    • Syntax Based Tools and Compilers List D
    • Technical Elective Linear Optimization
    • Technical Elective Syntax Based Tools and Compilers
    • Web Systems and Web Computing

    Note that students judged to be ‘outstanding’ may be allowed to transfer directly into a Ph.D. program on completion.

    Learning And Teaching

    McMaster University’s Undergraduate programs are delivered primarily through lectures and seminars, though you will also attend laboratory skills workshops and special events. Some modules may be available as distance learning or blended learning programs.

    This program stresses the ability of both staff and students to make both technological and social impacts on the local, national and global levels. This results in greater experiential learning opportunities for students as well as greater student retention.

    Career Possibilities

    This degree will prepare you for a wide range of careers addressing tasks such tasks as computer system development, software analysis and app development.

    Recent graduates have gone on to work with organisations like Advanced MicroDevices (AMD), ArcelorMittal, Bell Canada, Canadian Imperial Bank of Canada (CIBC), Evertz Microsystems, Ford Motor Company of Canada, IBM Canada, Microsoft and Toronto Hydro Corporation.

    Others have gone on to PhD level courses, both at McMaster and elsewhere.

    Entry & Credit

    Successful completion will result in a 1 year MSc degree.

     Applicants must typically have completed an honours degree at the baccalaureate level, or the international equivalent. This degree need not have been in Computer Science.

    All classes are taught in English unless otherwise noted, and international students will be required to show proficiency in English by scoring well on an approved test.
