Applied Computing

The MScAC program is a 16-month applied research program designed to prepare you for life-long success as a technical/innovation leader, primarily in the information technology space. The program begins with eight months of advanced graduate research courses focusing in computer science or data science, studying with Canada's leading researchers. This is followed by an eight-month applied research internship at a firm where you will apply research results to real-world problems. 

Graduate faculty in the Department of Computer Science are interested in a wide range of subjects related to computing, including programming languages and methodology, software engineering, operating systems, compilers, distributed computation, networks, numerical analysis and scientific computing, financial computation, data structures, algorithm design and analysis, computational complexity, cryptography, combinatorics, graph theory, artificial intelligence, neural networks, knowledge representation, computational linguistics, computer vision, robotics, database systems, graphics, animation, interactive computing, and human-computer interaction.   ​
