Description: Computing Science is one of the top degrees for careers in North America. On top of Computer Science, the Queen’s School of Computing is home to diverse areas of study such as software design, game development, biomedical computing, cognitive science, computing and mathematics, and computing and the creative arts. Offering an exciting learning experience in this ever-changing field, by fostering interaction across disciplines, Computing prepares you for countless careers and graduate degrees. Our 12 to 16-month paid internship option gives students an opportunity to gain experience in industry, while earning academic credits. Our outstanding professors are both internationally recognized experts and committed educators who take pride in giving you the skills and theoretical knowledge you’ll need to excel as a computer scientist.

Mathematicians seek out patterns, construct rigorous arguments, articulate assumptions, appreciate the value of a precise definition, analyze mathematical models, and create beautiful structures. Statisticians produce trustworthy data, extract meaning and draw practical conclusions from data, test conjectures, provide mathematical evidence, and critique the reasoning of others. In both cases, these skills have a surprising ability to help make sense of the physical, biological, artistic, psychological, economic, social, and philosophical worlds. As a consequence, quantitative expertise is in high demand on the job market. Moreover, rankings of occupations invariably list multiple careers in mathematics and statistics among the very best.
