The Department of Computer Science and Engineering, Faculty of Science and Engineering, is one of the leading academic and research departments in Canada. We offer a range of undergraduate and graduate programs in computer science and computer engineering: the BA and B.Sc. in Computer Science, the BA and BSc in Computer Security, the BASc Computer Engineering, and the innovative iBSc in Computer Science, as well as MSc and PhD programs in computer science.

Honours BA and BSc programs are accredited by the Computer Science Accreditation Council. The BASc program is accredited by the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board.

Our undergraduate programs aim to educate students for the diverse futures they will face. Hence the technical education in computer science and engineering is combined with a traditional liberal arts education in the BA and with a broad base of the science in the B.Sc. and the BASc. Specialisation in a second area in either the BA or the BSc is highly encouraged. In addition we encourage an international experience through summer schools and semesters abroad. We aim to educate a well-rounded individual able to contribute much more than a narrow technical expertise.

Our graduate programs are research based, thriving on the broad range of active research conducted by faculty members in the Department. Key strengths include computer vision, robotics and artificial intelligence, computer networks, theoretical computer science, database systems, human computer interaction, and software engineering. With some 30 research faculty and over 100 graduate students and research staff the Department fosters a dynamic research environment.
