    Course Summary

    An MSc in Computer Science from the he University of Guelph focuses both on theoretical, academic research and applied research which will be of immediate use to business and industry.

    The university’s teaching staff are heavily engaged in many kinds of relevant research, and bring a great deal of industry experience to the table. As a result, you can expect to learn very specialised skills which will be relevant both to advanced study at the PhD level or to founding a career in several different industries upon graduation.

    You’ll have plenty of opportunities to engage in your own research and to participate in the ground-breaking research programs already established at U of G. You can choose from several Research Areas, including:

    • Applied Modelling (AM)
    • Artificial Intelligence (AI)
    • Distributed Computing (DC)
    • Human Computer Interaction (HCI)

    However, students are encouraged to take a multidisciplinary approach, and should not see any research area as isolated.

    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

    University of Guelph relies in many standard teaching methods to convey the content above. These will almost certainly include formal lectures, interactive tutorials and skills sessions as well as seminar style classes. It is also a major research university, and you will be able to contribute to these programs yourself.

    The Computer Science program features a great deal of laboratory and applied analytical work, which will prepare you equally well for a PhD or for employment.

    Career Possibilities

    You will have many options, including entering a PhD program or progressing directly into the job market. Many of U of G’s Computer Science MSc students have gone on to research Advanced Algorithm Development, Data Analysis, Design Patterns, or Innovations in eHealth and Machine Learning. Those who have gone directly into industry have become User Interface Analysts, Software Developers, Software Designers, Machine Learning Specialists, AI Technicians and Data Engineers.

    Entry & Credit

    Successful completion will result in an MSc degree.

    MSc applicants must typically have a 4 year Baccalaureate degree at an average of no less than 75% or the international equivalent. PhD requirements include suitable references.

    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.
