Information For New Computer Science Students, Fall 2016
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).
The new program will be gradually phased in, starting with first-year core courses in 2016-2017:
COMP-1000 – “Computer Science - An Introduction”
COMP-1001 – “Introduction to Programming”
COMP-1002 – “Logic for Computer Science”
COMP-2001 – “Object-oriented Programming and Human-Computer Interaction”
Changes proposed for the future include the establishment of a number of dedicated streams in addition to the general degree. Streams will allow students to focus on a specific area within Computer Science. Currently we are considering the introduction of the following streams:
Visual Computing and Games
Theory of Computation
