Overview

Master of Science - Computer Science

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. 

For fully qualified students, the MSc program provides four options for completing the degree requirements: thesis, project, co-op or course only.
