The Computing Science Department offers programs prompting the levels of Master of Science and Doctor of Philosophy in significant spaces of study, including Advanced Man-Machine Interfaces, Algorithmics, Artificial Intelligence, Communication Networks, Computer Vision and Multimedia Communications, Computer Games, Computer Graphics, Statistical Machine Learning, Database Systems, Machine Learning, Bioinformatics, Robotics, Software Engineering, Software Systems and Reinforcement Learning.
MSc programs include a MSc in CS with specialization in Statistical Machine Learning, a standard MSc in Computing Science and a MSc in CS with specialization in Multimedia. The standard MSc in CS is offered as a postulation based program, just as course-based program; the MSc in CS with specialization in Statistical Machine Learning is offered as a proposition based program; the MSc in Computing Science with specialization in Multimedia is offered as a course-based program.
A standard PhD in Computing Science and a program prompting a PhD in Computing Science with specialization in Statistical Machine Learning comes under PhD programs.
Additional data might be acquired from the Graduate Program Administrator, Department of Computing Science.
Except the MSc (course-based) with a specialization in Multimedia for all projects:
Candidates for the MSc degree in Computing Science ought to have a four-year college degree or the comparable from a perceived college, with satisfactory foundation in computing science and arithmetic.
There is no immediate admission to the MSc with a specialization in Statistical Machine Learning. Candidates wishing to seek after this program ought to apply to the proposition based MSc; they may apply to move to the SML program after a couple of terms of study gave a manager is found.
Candidates for the PhD in Computing Science should have a MSc degree in Computing Science or a connected field.
Astoundingly qualified candidates having what could be compared to a First-Class Honors BSc degree might be conceded straightforwardly to the PhD program.
MSc up-and-comers who perform particularly well in their first meeting (eight months) of studies, may apply to change program class into the PhD program after two terms of study.
All candidates should have an affirmation GPA of at any rate 3.0 on the 4-point scale from the University of Alberta, or a comparable remaining from a perceived organization. GPA will be carried out on the last ★60 of reviewed coursework finished, or on what could be compared to the most recent two years of full-time evaluated coursework.
Where material, candidates should give evidence of English Language Proficiency (allude to English Language Requirement). Any of coming up next is satisfactory:
- a base TOEFL score of 100 with a base score of 21 on every one of the individual ability territories (web based), or same
- at least 6.0 on each band on the IELTS with a general least score of 7.0,
- a base by and large scores of 70 on the CAEL with at any rate 60 on each subtest
- a base generally speaking score of 68 on the PTE.
What’s more, the Department of Computing Science maintains all authority to require a showing of English language capability.
Candidates should likewise submit three letters of reference and a CV.
Candidates to a proposition based MSc are needed to choose an exploration region and name up to three educators as likely directors.
Candidates to a PhD are needed to present a mission statement, the theoretical of their MSc proposition, and the names of up to three educators as expected directors. PhD understudies might be conceded if an educator consents to be their chief.
A Graduate Record Examination (GRE) is discretionary however enthusiastically suggested for non-Canadian candidates, just as Canadian candidates with a degree from a non-Canadian college. The GRE is additionally prescribed for understudies with foundations random to Computing Science. The assessments ought to be composed early enough so that scores will be accessible by the application cutoff time.
Course-based MSc with a specialization in Multimedia:
MSc degree candidates with a specialization in Multimedia should have a four-year college degree in CS, Computer Engineering, or in a connected field in Science or Engineering with some coding and execution experience. GPA of in any event 3.0 on the 4-point scale from the University of Alberta, or an identical remaining from a perceived establishment. GPA will be carried out on the last ★60 of evaluated coursework finished, or on what could be compared to the most recent two years of full-time reviewed coursework.
Candidates should meet the base English Language Requirement.
Candidates are likewise needed to present a CV, interactive media related proficient authentications/confirmations, and a sight and sound venture history (if excluded from the CV).
Modern experience might be considered as a factor while considering confirmation of understudies near these limits. It ought to be noticed that these are least prerequisites as it were.
Applications to the MSc in Multimedia program will be evaluated by the MSc in Multimedia affirmation.
For all projects EXCEPT the MSc (course-based) with a specialization in Multimedia, the early application cutoff time is December 15. Evaluation of utilizations will start on this date just as thought for financing and grants. Applications will keep on being acknowledged until January 15.
For the MSc (course-based) with a specialization in Multimedia the application cutoff time is April 30.
Canadian understudies who hold significant grants may contact the Department whenever, regardless of whether it is after the cutoff time.
The division offers monetary help for understudies in proposal based projects as indicated by the rules given in the Department of Computing Science Financial Support Policy. To be considered for help, understudies should keep up good scholarly and educating execution.
