The BSc Major in Computing Science is a four-year degree program that provides students with a broad training in science (concentrated in the first two years), and then a thorough training in computing science (concentrated in the last two years). Graduates will then be well qualified for a wide range of employment opportunities, for further study in advanced degrees and for research positions. A cooperative education option is available for the Major in Computing Science.
The first two years of all BSc programs at TRU (the pre-degree years) focus on providing scientific breadth, enhancing communication skills — oral, written and computer — and completion of in-depth pre-requisite courses for the specific degree. Currently students enter the BSc program at TRU at the end of their second year of study. A student in full time study would normally have completed 60 credits by this time, but entry to the program can formally take place after the completion of 48 credits. The degree component (the final 60 credits) would normally be completed in two years (four academic semesters) of full time study, although completion of the degree on a part time basis will be an option. Graduates will be able to draw upon their general and specific scientific knowledge, and the analytical and research skills that they learn as an integral part of the degree program.
