Computer Science is a branch of Science and Technology that deals with theories and methods surrounding computing and its application in various fields. The study requires a strong mathematical and analogical foundation than theoretical. Computer Science students are expected to understand language, technical structure, mathematical structure, software and applications of computer in all aspects. In basic terms, it’s the study of computers, it’s applications and it’s uses. Since computers are now used everywhere, the value of computer engineers/scientists will never diminish.
Following Are The Top Universities In Canada For Computer Science:
1. University Of Waterloo:
The Cheriton School of Computer Science at the University of Waterloo is one of the best in the world. UW Computer Science research publications have the most citations and have had the most impact among Canadian Computer Science departments according to a ranking by the Science Citation Index in 2005. Active areas of research include artificial intelligence, bioinformatics, computer graphics, databases and text management, networks and distributed systems, programming languages, scientific computing, software engineering, computational statistics, etc. The university of Waterloo accepts early action and regular decision. Students who wish to apply as early action can apply till November. Deadline for regular decision is January.
2. University Of British Columbia, Vancouver:
The University of British Columbia is ranked number 1 in having the highest journal publishing impact factor in the field of computer science in Canada. UBC is known for its Engineering and Math departments which are one of the best in the world so naturally the competition to get in them is quite rigorous. Department of Computer Science has 1251 undergraduate and 218 graduate students with overall 130 faculty members. UBC accepts early action and regular action for admissions. Early action deadline is November and for Regular action, students may apply till January.
3. University Of Toronto, Ontario, Canada:
The University of Toronto is ranked 1st in the country and 8th in the world for Computer Science in the Academic Ranking of World Universities 2009. The University is also placed in the top 30 globally (29th) in the Times Higher Education – QS World University Rankings 2009. University’s computer science department has nearly 130 faculties who prepare around 300 graduate and undergraduate students in the subject every year. The University accepts the early decision, regular decision, and early admission procedures. Such a low student to teacher ratio is another reason why the University has been providing some of the best Computer engineers since a long time.
4. McGill University, Montreal, Quebec:
McGill School of Computer Science (SOCS) is one of the leading teaching and research centers for computer science in Canada. Its professors have received most of the top awards in Computer Science. Research Areas at SOCS include Computational Complexity, Computational Geometry, Discrete Mathematics, Internet Technologies, Machine Learning, Medical Image Analysis, Pattern Recognition, etc. It is the top research university in Canada (tied with U. of Toronto) in Maclean’s 2005 rankings. It’s ranked 3rd in the country and 65th in the world according to the Academic Ranking of World Universities 2009. McGill accepts early action and regular decision admissions.
5. Carleton University, Ontario:
Carleton University is one of top Computer Science Universities in USA Resources and Information. In fact, Carleton has secured a position in the top 10 computer science universities in the World consistently. It is also placed in the Top 5 in Canada for its research impact on the field of computer science. The university is also termed as Canada’s capital university due to its reputation and stand. Carleton’s CS program offers a total of 50 courses that include computer graphics, computer gaming, robotics, GIS etc, and therefore, providing students a variety of options to explore and hone their skills in the subject. Applications for admission are available in the month of October.
