    Course Summary

    Computer Science is a bit of a misnomer, as it has little to do with the science behind how computers physically operate. It is all about computation, though, and expanding the realm of what can be done computationally. Computer scientists work to expand the capability of today’s computational systems, making those system behaving in more useful ways, and finding new ways to support and augment human achievement with computer systems.

    The University of Toronto’s Computer Science BSc degree program prepares you to fill a role which is in very high demand in today’s job markets. A skilled CS graduate from a prestigious university like the UOT can often pick and choose between very lucrative job offers, even when applying in a very specific or even niche market.

     In addition, it offers the chance to engage in a Professional Experience Year Co-op program or the CIE Exchange program. Either can broaden your horizons and make you more employable.

    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.
