Diploma and Bachelor's Degree Programs

Computer Science

Programs in computer science at the University of Regina encompass the study of artificial intelligence, programming, information systems, software design, multi-media, data science, and machine learning.

Studying Computer Science at the University of Regina

We offer high-quality undergraduate and graduate programs. The undergraduate programs are among the highest in demand across campus, with our graduates moving on to successful career opportunities. We have an active honours program, a co-op program and many opportunities for students to participate in research projects. Accessible, modern research facilities put our PhD and MSc students at the forefront in their fields. Our graduate students benefit from working in a close-knit, supportive environment that encourages innovative science.

For students not seeking or requiring a four year degree, the Department offers a two-year Diploma program in computer science. At the Master’s level, there are two professionally oriented course-based programs in data science and human-centered computing.

The Department operates a vigorous program in cooperative University education in the four-year degree programs. Following the first two semesters of University courses, students spend alternate four-month periods taking courses and working in fully salaried computer science related jobs with participating employers. Such a program may improve the student's motivation and performance, and the practical experience gained may aid the student in choosing future areas of interest. A cooperative education option is also available to eligible students in our M.Sc. programs.

Research

Our programs offer experiential learning in the classroom and lab. Undergraduates have the opportunity to do their own, independent research projects, learning alongside graduate students and experienced faculty, while our graduate students can build their skills working closely with supervisors who will guide and support their growth as researchers.
