What will I learn?

We offer a solid Computer Science education in a Liberal Arts environment. We also integrate into our curriculum real-world experience including our co-operative education program and access to Undergraduate Capstone Open Source Projects.

Our department offers a sound and complete education in Computer Science, supplemented by opportunities to join the research groups of our faculty. Numerous students have gone forward to graduate studies or to good jobs. We also offer a friendly atmosphere, with opportunities to socialize with faculty and fellow students. The entire faculty maintains an open-door policy in both academic and non-academic matters, and we encourage students’ participation in the Computer Science Club.

All students are admitted in a four-year, 120-credit (forty 3-credit courses) program. Students who possess another University degree recognized by the Quebec government, and who wish to obtain a Bachelor degree in Computer Science, are normally admitted in a 30-credit-minimum program. However, they have to satisfy the program requirements: Math and Physics prerequisites, in addition to the Computer Science, Math and Physics requirements. All students in Bachelor programs must complete the English Writing Proficiency requirement (EWP) before graduation.

Computer science is a subject related to almost every contemporary intellectual discipline, the arts (computer-generated art, verification of historical documents, syntax study of languages including translation, etc.), social sciences (correlating experimental data, simulation, artificial intelligence studies), natural sciences (has always had application in this area), business and government (the largest single groups of users), education (computer-aided instruction, artificial intelligence), medicine, etc.

The Department also offers a Certificate in Computer Science.

Admission Requirements General:

The following requirements should be used as a guideline to be considered competitive for admissions consideration. Each admission cycle, Bishop’s University receives more applications than spaces available. Meeting the minimum posted requirements does not guarantee admission. Applicants who do not meet the posted requirements may be considered on an individual basis. In those cases, the Admissions Office may request additional information in addition to that indicated below.
