    Course Summary

    The University of Ottawa’s BSc program in Computer Science is delivered by their own School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. This is a highly respected institution which can give you a definitive advantage when it comes to looking for a job after graduation. 

    You’ll learn to practice the Computer Scientist’s art – developing and improving software systems which can analyse, store and organise information. You’ll find new ways to make these systems more scalable, faster and more reliable. You’ll also choose a specialisation for yourself, chosen from Algorithm Design, Distributed Computing, Data Security, Computer Graphics, Artificial Intelligence or Databases, among others. 

    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. 

    You’ll be able to take many of your classes in French or in English throughout the entire program. 

    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

    The University of Ottawa’s Computer Science BSc program focuses both on the practical and the academic. It uses every teaching method available, from lecture based classroom instruction to laboratory practice, from the use of state of the art technologies and facilities to diligent academic research techniques. You’ll engage in an honours project, conducting your own research in the university’s labs, benefiting from close guidance and mentoring every step of the way. 

    Career Possibilities

    A BSc in Computer Science can qualify you for a wide range of different roles. The simple fact is that almost every industry and economic sector demands computer scientists to create the apps and systems they need to thrive. While you might prefer to enter into an MSc program next, whether at U Ottawa or elsewhere, you could also go directly into a career in Business, Industry, Government or even Entertainment, depending on your specialisation and interests. 

    Entry & Credit

    Successful completion will result in a 4 year BSc degree. 

    To apply, you’ll need to have a secondary school diploma which includes science and mathematics content, or the international equivalent. Other qualifications may be accepted. 

    All classes are taught in English or in French, unless otherwise specified. International students will be required to show proficiency in English and/or French by scoring well on an approved test.
