    Course Summary

    Employers in all industries and all sectors of the economy need skilled Computer Science graduates in numbers far too large for all of North America’s universities combined to produce. That puts MSc graduates in a very enviable position, able to pick and choose between the most sought-after roles in their field upon graduation.

    The MSc degree in Computer Science presented by Memorial University of Newfoundland is multifaceted, and will see you gaining a mastery of almost every aspect of the field, on the practical, creative ad theoretical levels. Whether you intend to go on to a PhD program at memorial or any other fine university or dive straight into the job market with your degree, this is just the program for you.

     This program allows you to become involved with the university’s world renowned research output via standard, cross-appointed and adjunct faculty positions. You can also do your own research as you study, both in the lab and in the field.

    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.
