    Course Summary

    Computer Science graduates are in very high demand in business and industry nearly everywhere in the world today. This is because of the rapid advances being made in the field, and the need for skilled technicians, programmers and developers to integrate these advances in practice. Virtually all industries across the Private, Public and Not for Profit sectors are hiring Computer Science graduates as fast as they can find them.

    Mount Allison University offers two separate Computer Science degrees – the BSc detailed here and a combined BA in Computer Science and Mathematics.  

    The BSc in Computer Science includes a general background education in the field as well as in depth instruction in CS, mathematical and data theory, algorithm analysis, computer architecture design and analysis, as well as hands-on work with operating systems, compilers, networked systems and software engineering. You’ll also learn about the historical, ethical and social context of computer science.

    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.

    • computer graphics
    • cryptography
    • databases
    • networks
    • software & hardware design
    • computational theory

    Career Possibilities

    Not only will you have the kind of Computer Science, Coding and IT skills, industry demands, you’ll have a wide range of general skills which could lead to a career in a completely unrelated field. Mount Allison’s Computer Science graduates have become computer designers, computer engineers and programmers, computer network specialists, database developers and administrators, electronic commerce specialists, intelligence officers, logistics specialists, security architects, network security analysts, software developers and web developers.

    Entry & Credit

    Successful completion will result in a 4 year BSc degree.

    Applicants must typically have completed a university preparatory program at a senior secondary school, or the international equivalent. They should be able to show average marks of at least 80%.

    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.
