Notes

1 ITI1120 is a prerequisite for most further courses in computer science (CSI). GNG1106 is recommended for students not taking further computer science courses (CSI).
2The following courses are recommended as particularly useful: MAT3130, MAT3155, MAT3341, MAT3380, MAT3395, MAT4183,MAT4381, MAT4385, MAT4386, MAT4387, MAT4388.
3 Out of the 18 elective course units, some breadth in other sciences is recommended and particularly CHM1311.
4 MAT2371 is a prerequisite for most further MAT courses in probability and statistics.
5 May be taken anytime in 3rd or 4th year if prerequisites satisfied.
6 MAT1348 is a prerequisite for most second year computer science courses (CSI).

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 with electives.

Please note that all programs in the Faculty of Science require a minimum of 12 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 French Immersion Stream is available with this program.
The minimum CGPA required to be on good academic standing is 5.0
Please note that a maximum of 48 units at the 1000 level can be used towards your program.
