Program Overview

Computer Science

We live in the digital age. Modern technology has made the world faster and more connected. Most industries rely on data and software programs. As a result, computer science impacts everything, from scientific research to health development, transport, banking, communications, and more.

Our graduate programs in computer science focus on six main research areas:

  • Artificial intelligence and deep learning
  • Data science and data analytics
  • Human-centred computing and computational media
  • Software engineering
  • Systems, communication, and cybersecurity
  • Theoretical computer science

The University of Regina's graduate degrees in Computer Science are accredited by the Computer Science Accreditation Council (CSAC). The Department of Computer Science was one of the first four departments in Canada to be accredited in 1982. We are the only computer science department in Canada to have been accredited continuously since then.

Master of Science (MSc) in Computer Science (Data Science) (course-based)

The Master's program in Data Science consists of 30 credits of coursework. In this full-time program, students learn about data-focused programming, along with foundational concepts in the data science lifecycle, statistics, and machine learning. Advanced topics on applied machine learning, big data analytics, cloud computing, and methods for communicating about data science projects will be covered. The program will conclude with a professionally-focused seminar series and a capstone project.
