DescriptionThe Post Baccalaureate Program is a program of studies for students who already possess a university degree - whether in computing science or another discipline. It includes studies in computing science at a more advanced level. This program is intended for students who wish to augment their current career path with a significant amount of computing science, or seek an adequate level of undergraduate training before applying to a graduate program in computing science.

As an alternative to a second degree (B.Sc.) in computing science, a PBD can be taken instead by those who wish to make a career change to computing and information technology. Depending on the student's previous academic and professional background, the co-operative education work program may also be available. Students interested in the PBD for this reason should consult an advisor.
