    Course Summary

    The degrees in Computing Science offered by Simon Fraser University have been designed to produce the fine software designers, coders and software engineers who will define the technological landscape of the world. You’ll receive a general education in computer science and programming, but you’ll also be able to select your own specialty by choosing optional modules and adding other Majors or Minors from other fields.

    You’ll study the basic mathematics and principles of computer science, and then integrate these with best industrial practice as you learn specific computer languages, techniques, methodologies and tool sets. Perhaps more importantly, you’ll ‘learn how to learn’, gaining the research skills and knowledge you’ll need to stay at the forefront of computer science and coding as your career progresses. 

    No matter what path you take, you’ll be well prepared for higher level degree study or to enter the workforce with the practical and technical skills you need to succeed.

    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.
