    Course Summary

    A BSc program in Computer Science and Engineering from Western University is a chance for you to work with some of the most respected research faculty in Canada and to custom tailor our degree to suit your interests and career goals, all from one of the country’s most beautiful campuses and most advanced facilities.

    You’ll learn the basics of Computer Science in a way designed to be as useful as possible to any engineering graduate. You’ll earn to direct this insight to the tasks engineers do every day – developing safe and effective technological solutions for real world problems. That might mean building robots or robot software control systems, but it could just as easily mean designing CAD software for the next generation of Civil Engineers.

    You’ll take both programs simultaneously, earning a concurrent degree that could be the first step in an exciting career in either field – or in something completely different.

    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.

    Course Outline

    This degree program is typically delivered over 4 years of full time study.

    You’ll have your choice of several different degree pathways.

    An Honours Specialisation in Computer Science is a kind of generalist CS pathway which addresses all areas of computing science. Specialised modules include:

    • Computer Science Thesis
    • Software Maintenance and Configuration Management
    • Statistics for Science

    An Honours Specialisation in Information Systems focuses more on the application of computers and other information systems to business and industry. This focus was developed in consultation with the Ivey Business School. Specialised modules include:

    • Mathematics
    • Applied Mathematics
    • Engineering Science
    • Calculus
    • Databases
    • Cryptography and Security
    • What is Cognitive Computing?

    An Honours Specialisation in Bioinformatics looks at ways to organise, analyse, store and retrieve biological data. This is one of Western’s most advanced and potentially rewarding fields of study. Specialised modules include:

    • Mathematics
    • Biology
    • Chemistry
    • Organic Chemistry
    • Biochemistry
    • Statistical Sciences
    • Biological Macromolecules
    • Introduction to Visual Analytics

    Learning And Teaching

    Western’s Computer Science and Engineering programs have many different learning methods. Of course you’ll take large lecture classes and engage in practical laboratory sessions. You’ll also take part in interactive seminars and even smaller tutorial sessions.   

    In addition, you’ll have the opportunity to take part in a research at a world renowned facility making cutting edge advances in computer imaging, DNA computing and game design, to name just a few.

    Career Possibilities

    This degree program includes an optional 8 to 16 month internship at one of the university’s IT partners in industry. This is typically done between years 3 and 4 of the program. Many of these internships have led to offers of full time employment after graduation with companies like IBM an Microsoft. You’ll have plenty of contact with potential employers at career fairs and information sessions as well as in your final year research project.

    Entry & Credit

    Successful completion will result in a 4 year BSc degree.

    Applicants must typically have graduated from a Canadian or overseas secondary school, though there are many other options.

    All classes are taught in English unless otherwise indicated, and international students will be required to show proficiency in English by scoring well on an approved test.
