Notes

ITI1120 is a prerequisite for most further courses in computer science (CIS). GNG1106 is recommended for students not taking further computer science courses (CSI).
Of the 24 elective course units, some breadth in other sciences is recommended and the following courses are recommended in particular: CHM1311, (MAT2141 or MAT2342), (MAT2371 or MAT2377)

For students registered in the Faculty of Science: If the components of your program of study require common compulsory courses, you will have to replace the units as follows:

  1. 1000-level courses must be replaced with elective course units;
  2. 2000-level courses and above must be replaced with optional course units from either discipline at the same level or above.

Once you have decided on the replacement courses, please inform the Office of Undergraduate Programs of the Faculty of Science by email at infosci@uOttawa.ca so we may amend your Academic report accordingly.

Please note that all programs in the Faculty of Science require a minimum of 12 elective course units from the Faculty of Arts, Faculty of Education, Faculty of Law, Faculty of Social Sciences or the Telfer School of Management.

Co-operative education is available with this program.
The extended French stream is available with this program.
The minimum CGPA required to be on good academic standing is 5.0.
