The Department of Computer Science offers opportunities for advanced study leading to a Ph.D. and M.Sc. Fields of study within Computer Science include Bayesian statistics and applications, bioinformatics, computational intelligence (computational vision, automated reasoning, multi-agent systems, intelligent interfaces, and machine learning), computer communications, databases, distributed and parallel systems, empirical analysis of algorithms, computer graphics, human-computer interaction, hybrid systems, integrated systems design, networks, network security, networking and multimedia, numerical methods and geometry in computer graphics, operating systems, programming languages, robotics, scientific computation, software engineering, visualization, and theoretical aspects of computer science (computational complexity, computational geometry, analysis of complex graphs, and parallel processing).
See the Media and Graphics Interdisciplinary Centre (www.magic.ubc.ca) for more information.
Students admitted to the Ph.D. degree program normally possess an M.Sc. degree in computer science or related area, with clear evidence of research ability or potential. Transfer from the M.Sc. to the Ph.D. program is permitted under Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies regulations.
All students enrolled in the Ph.D. program in Computer Science must satisfy course requirements (www.cs.ubc.ca/students/grad/prospective/programs/phd) covering a wide range of fields of study within Computer Science. All doctoral students are required to complete a comprehensive examination successfully. The major requirement for the Ph.D. is completion of a research dissertation meeting the Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies requirements.
For detailed information about program requirements, see CS Graduate Admissions (www.cs.ubc.ca/students/grad/prospective).
Students admitted to the M.Sc. degree program normally possess a B.Sc. degree in computer science or related area, and must meet the general admission requirements for master's degree programs set by the Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies.
There are three options available to M.Sc. students:
