Description:Computer science encompasses everything from theory to applications, including software engineering, programming languages, robotics, compilers, databases, game design and development, operating systems, artificial intelligence, computational biology, computer vision, and the analysis of algorithms.

A university-level education in computer science will help you develop your analytical thinking and creative problem solving skills while studying a wealth of exciting topics with a wide range of applications (from medicine to business). An undergraduate education in computer science will also open the door to careers in a variety of companies (engineering, high-tech, pharmaceutical).

You can study Computer Science at McGill in many different ways. One typical way is by completing a Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.) degree program in the Faculty of Science. You can choose the amount and nature of the computer science courses that you take by selecting different program options. For example, a Major in Computer Science requires you to take 60 credits of computer science or related courses. On the other hand, a Minor in Computer Science requires you to take only 24 credits of computer science or related courses. Most computer science courses are worth 3 or 4 credits.
