Computer Science Grad Program Info

The department offers Master’s and Ph.D. programs at the graduate level, which cover many areas of computer science. The department also participates in the Master’s of Mathematical, Computational and Statistical Sciences program offered through the Institute of Industrial Mathematical Sciences. Graduates find employment in industry and academia.

Fields of Research

The department has people working in the areas of robotics, computer vision, intelligent agents, multi-agent systems, multimedia and hypermedia, bioinformatics, biomedical and health informatics, self-organizing systems, medical information systems, software engineering and integration, human-computer interaction, networks, parallel and distributed systems, databases, data mining, networks, multiplayer online games, data structures, algorithms, combinatorics and combinatorial designs, graph theory, artificial intelligence, computer graphics and curve design, computer-aided geometric design, computational finance, grid computing, wireless sensor networks, and pervasive computing. More information about specific individuals and their current research work can be found on the department’s web site.

Research Facilities

Each graduate student will have a personal study space in an appropriate departmental research laboratory, and access to laser printers, mail, photocopying, a fax machine, and a graduate student lounge.

Computing facilities for research include a large variety of desktop computers as well as access to large clusters within the department, at the University of Manitoba, and across Western Canada via the WestGrid II network.

M.Sc. in Computer Science

Admission

Admission requirements are those of the Faculty of Graduate Studies found in the Graduate Studies Regulations Section of this Calendar. Students may be admitted to the Master's program if they hold an Honours Bachelor's degree in Computer Science and if they present a suitable selection of courses. Admission is not guaranteed and each application will be individually considered by the department’s Graduate Studies Committee.

Students can also be admitted to the Master's program upon successful completion of their pre-Master's program.

Application Deadlines

The Department of Computer Science allows students to begin their program in September or January. For admission for each of these start dates, Canadian/U.S. students should send their applications with complete supporting documentation to the Department of Computer Science no less than three (3) months before the intended start date. All other students should have their applications with complete supporting documentation received by the Department of Computer Science no later than eight (8) months before the intended start date.

Program Requirements

Minimum program requirements of the Faculty of Graduate Studies are found in the Graduate Studies Regulations Section of this Calendar. Students must complete 12 credit hours of coursework and a thesis. All credit hours must be at the 7000 level and must include the 0-credit-hour Research Methodologies course. See the departmental Graduate Supplemental Regulations (available on the department’s web site). Students must consult with their departmental advisor prior to deciding on courses. The courses listed below will not all be offered in any one particular year.

Second language reading requirement: none

Expected time to graduate: two years
