While a new Computer Science undergraduate curriculum has been approved, the current program will also be continued for current Computer Science majors.
There will be a transition period while the old program is phased out, beginning in the next academic year. Students who are current Computer Science majors should follow the current program regulations and course requirements. Note that COMP-2710, COMP-2742, and COMP-2760 will be offered for the last time in Fall 2016, while COMP-2711 will be offered for the last time in Winter 2017.
What may have been the largest group of students ever admitted to the Faculty of Science Dean’s List at one time was honoured at an event on Sept. 20.
Annual Dean’s Awards Ceremony was held on Memorial University’s St. John’s campus and saw Dr. Mark Abrahams, dean of Science, recognize 281 students who represent the top 10 per cent in the faculty.
Good news! A new Computer Science undergraduate curriculum has been approved and we can take the first steps in phasing in the new program in September 2016.
A restructuring of the core curriculum of Computer Science has reduced the required number of credit hours to 27 (equivalent to 9 courses).
