NEW! MacLean's 2019 Computer Science Rankings
(StFX's Computer Science program is the top ranked in Atlantic Canada and #16 in Canada)
Welcome to Computer Science at StFX, where students undertake studies that offer a well-rounded education in the science of computing. Computer Science (CS) spans a broad range from theory to practice to cutting- edge inventions. CS makes graduates aware of new technologies and new ideas and is a foundation for many different computing careers. There are many sub areas (e.g., artificial intelligence, databases, game development, graphics, high- performance computing, networking, programming languages, robotics, security, etc.) within the broader discipline of CS, with new areas being created as the discipline evolves.
Computer Science jobs are among the highest paid and have the highest job satisfaction. CS is very often associated with innovation, and developments in computing tend to drive it. Most analysts predict that the number of people trained for jobs in the computing industry will fall far short of the employment demand. As a result of this shortfall, job prospects for graduates in CS are expected to remain excellent.
Undergraduate students can pursue a Major, Advanced Major or Honours degree in Computer Science. Graduate students can pursue both a research-based Master's of Science (MSc) in Computer Science and a course-based Master's of Applied Computer Science (MACS). Our faculty members are very active in research. Together, they provide an education in Computer Science that rivals all other Canadian universities—one that produces high-achievers who are well-suited to graduate studies and industry.
