About

The University of British Columbia Department of Computer Science, established in May 1968, is one of the top computer science departments in North America and offers the Computer Science program. 

Overview

Recognized internationally for excellence in research and teaching with a conscious focus on interdisciplinary programs, the Department encourages diversity both within its community and areas of study, and plays a leadership role in research, teaching and outreach activities to champion the understanding and integration of Computer Science within all aspects of society.

For those students contemplating advanced studies in computer science at UBC, completing a master's degree before continuing to the PhD program confers several advantages. The two-year period of the master's first helps students decide whether a research career is the right career choice for them. If it is, taking this time helps give them the skills needed to pursue independent research.

What makes the program unique?

The University of British Columbia Department of Computer Science has many contacts in the computing industry. A strong rapport between the industry and research communities is beneficial to both, especially in cases where the department focuses its research to developing real-world applications.

Programme Structure

Courses include:

  • There are two types of MSc theses.
  • Either type allows the student to learn how to do research.  In choosing to write a thesis, a student will have a better understanding of what goes on in a research establishment. 
  • If the student continues on to the PhD program, the thesis option provides valuable experience in performing research and writing it up appropriately.
