Requirements


Applicants who have an honours degree in another discipline with the required average and whose undergraduate program has included a substantial Computer Science content will be required to take one or more courses simultaneously with their graduate courses to make up any deficiencies.

A M.Sc. degree can be obtained by successful completion of the following requirements:

  1. A minimum of four one-term courses (half courses) with at least a B- standing, chosen in consultation with the candidate’s thesis supervisor and the Computer Science Graduate Student Advisor.
  2. A thesis which demonstrates the ability to do original research.
  3. An oral examination to defend the thesis.

It is expected that these requirements will normally be met within 20 months of full-time study. All programs of study are subject to the approval of the Department Chair.
