Program Information
Faculty: Graduate Studies
Degree: Master
Field of Study: Computer Science
Description Mathematical, Computer, Physical and Molecular Sciences (MCPMS) is one stream of the Master of Science degree in the College of Science and Management. Thesis and project options are available. The thesis option has, as a substantial component, the completion of an original research program, culminating in the preparation of a thesis, and will prepare graduates for careers in research or for further academic study. The project option provides training across disciplines particularly suitable to individuals with more defined career objectives, as well as provides a mechanism for non-traditional students (e.g. working students, teachers, and professionals) to upgrade their skills. Students within the MCPMS stream will, upon successful completion of the degree requirements outlined herein, obtain an MSc with one or any combination of the following study areas noted parenthetically on their transcript: Mathematics, Biochemistry, Computer Science, Chemistry, and Physics.
