Course Summary

Computer Science is not just building bigger and faster machines. It is about finding new ways to use computers to identify, analyse and solve large, complex problems. It is about using the computing resources available to cure disease, educate the public or even fight climate change. ICT can do nearly anything you need it to.

The University of New Brunswick’s BSc in Computer Science is delivered by the Faculty of Computer Science. It is one of many which are designed to teach you how to design and code unique applications, and use computer systems to identify and solve problems on the industrial, commercial and personal levels. It will convey much more than technical skills – you’ll also learn leadership, teamwork, and a creative yet practical approach to innovation. 

This program allows you to specialise your degree pathway in one of six different ways. Specialisations include:

  • Theory and Computation
  • Software Systems
  • Multimedia Systems
  • Information Systems
  • Hardware Systems
  • Geographic Information Systems

If you are changing direction after starting in another career area, you will possess valuable work experience and professional awareness. Many employers actively seek candidates with these benefits. Our network of contacts, a dedicated employability service and a reputation in the legal profession mean we also have an outstanding track-record of finding students legal employment.Many employers favour GDL students in an increasingly competitive legal job market. Through studying another degree subject, you will have gained many transferable skills. By taking the conversion route into law, you are showing motivation and determination by choosing law at a later stage than some others. This looks good to employers.
