    Course Summary

    Queen’s University’s Computer Science BSc degree program is delivered by their Department of Arts and Science. This is a highly respected institution, and a degree from it can be a huge boost to your employability in those first critical years after graduation. 

    As a Computer Scientist, you’ll learn the principles which underlie computing – and with it most of the technologies we interact with every day.  You’ll be able to develop and improve software systems and create new ways to analyse, store and organise information. You might find ways to make these systems more scalable, faster or more reliable. 

    This program is presented as a major field of study, but you can also pursue a limited version of the Computer Science major as a minor, and seek to apply it to nearly any other field of study. In addition, you’ll be able to choose a specialisation for yourself, either Computer Science generally, Software Design, Computing and Mathematics, Computing and the Creative Arts, Cognitive Science or Biomedical Computing. 

    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.

    Learning And Teaching

    Queen’s University’s Computer Science program focuses both on practical and academic issues. It uses a wide range of teaching methods, everything from lecture based classroom instruction to laboratory practice. You’ll learn to use state of the art technologies and diligent academic research techniques. Finally, you’ll deliver either a practical or research project, conducting your own research in the university’s labs, or creating a real software product suitable for commercial or industrial use. 

    Career Possibilities

    A career in Computer Science could involve a wide range of different roles. As almost every industry throughout all the economic sectors demand computer scientists to create the apps and systems they need, your employment prospects are excellent. You could go directly into a career in Business, Industry, Government or even Entertainment, depending on your specialisation and interests, or you could opt for further training at the MSc or even PhD level. 

    Entry & Credit

    Successful completion will result in a 4 year BSc degree. 

    To apply, you’ll need to have an Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD) or the international equivalent. Other qualifications may also be accepted.
