Master of Science (MSc) - Computer Science



Что я буду изучать?

The Department of Computer Science offers programs of study involving interdepartmental, multi-institutional and inter-institutional collaboration that has attracted faculty members and graduate students from all over the world. Students may pursue full-time or part-time graduate study leading towards the MSc and PhD degrees.

The MSc and PhD degrees in Computer Science focus on four main areas of research: artificial intelligence; databases and information retrieval; graphics, image and audio processing; multimedia, and software engineering. Specifically, active research topics conducted by faculty members include, but are not limited to:

  • Data mining, knowledge discovery and machine learning, Bayesian networks, rough set theory, uncertainty management, quantitative and temporal reasoning
  • Graphical modeling and rendering algorithms, animation, image and signal processing, facial recognition, computational music and audio, information visualization, human computer interaction
  • Information retrieval, cognitive informatics, Web intelligence and service, electronic commerce, database theory, and information theory and its applications in communications
  • Language-based software security, data security, agent-oriented software engineering, software reuse, formal methods, and distance education
  • Algorithm design and analysis, theory of computing, computational geometry, graph theory

The Department of Computer Science maintains several research laboratories: Animation Software Design, Artificial Intelligence, Graphics, Intelligent Database System, Interactive Media, Computational Discovery, Multimedia Gaming, Open Systems, Rough Computing, Rough Music and Audio Digital Interactive, Saskatchewan Research Network Digital Media, Software Engineering, and Web Intelligence. Both the TR and New Media Studio laboratories result from collaborative research with various partners from industry, university, and government.

Program Requirements and Procedures

For the MSc, one course, at most, at the 400-level is allowed. No more than 2 directed reading or special topics classes may be used in a program. The courses taken may include at most 2 courses outside of Computer Science. Program requirements are slightly different depending on which option is chosen. MSc and PhD students are required to do two seminar presentations that are not associated with program credit hours.

MSc - Thesis route (30 credit hours):

The Master's thesis route requires students to pursue research supported by the Department of Computer Science. A fully qualified student may complete a Master's thesis route by undertaking 15 credits of coursework as well as 15 credits of thesis research together with the thesis defense. Two non-credit CS seminar presentations are also required.

MSc - Project route (30 credit hours):

A fully qualified student may complete a Master's project route by undertaking 21 credits of coursework, 9 credits of professionally oriented project research, and project defense. In addition, the student is required to give two non-credit CS seminar presentations.
