Computing Science (regular and co-op)

Program Information

School:University of Ontario Institute of Technology
Faculty:Faculty of Science
Degree:Bachelor
Field of Study:Digital Communication and Media/Multimedia
Description:Computing science is the scientific study of computation, including data storage, transmission and manipulation, software design and implementation, computing devices, and the interaction between people and computers. At UOIT, computing science is an applied program that concentrates on software production and digital media. Students learn modern software development techniques for servers, workstations, and mobile devices. The Computer Science Laboratory provides access to a range of mobile devices, hardware development kits, a multitouch tabletop computer, video cameras, sound recording and mixing equipment, along with dedicated Windows, Linux and Apple servers. Students can choose to follow the Digital Media specialization or the comprehensive program

Co-op programs: A five-year Co-operative Education option is available in all of our Science programs (except for Forensic Science, which already has an embedded experiential component), all of which satisfy the guidelines of the Canadian Association for Co-operative Education. These five-year programs combine an Honours Bachelor of Science program with embedded work terms. The co-op option gives you opportunities to apply your classroom and lab concepts to real-world situations and help you gain valuable, relevant work experience to promote networking and lifelong career success.
Co-op work terms give you the opportunity to earn a competitive salary that will help pay for your university degree and the work experience to help clarify your career objectives. More importantly, a co-op degree gives you a distinct advantage that will assist your prospects for full-time employment after graduation or for being readily accepted into graduate school to pursue further studies. Studies have shown that university students who graduate with a co-op degree have lower debt loads, are employed faster and have higher starting salaries. Laboratory provides access to a range of mobile devices, hardware development kits, a multitouch tabletop computer, video cameras, sound recording and mixing equipment, along with dedicated Windows, Linux and Apple servers. Students can choose to follow the Digital Media specialization or the comprehensive program
