X. Degree Programs

Bachelor of Computing (B.Comp.)

Students graduating from this program obtain a solid foundation in the theory and application of all aspects of computing and information science. Core subjects, combined with in-depth study in an area of application, give students the freedom to combine their interests in computing with other areas of study and application.

Guelph's Bachelor of Computing degree combines the necessary theoretical background with a focus on the application of computing science.. Course projects which are based on real-world software development scenarios allow students to get the practical experience valued by today's high-tech employers. The focused study in a second discipline (area of application) gives students the necessary background to effectively apply their knowledge.

For the degree of Bachelor of Computing the University of Guelph offers a specialized program requiring the equivalent of 8 semesters of successful full-time study (honours program) and a general program requiring the equivalent of 6 semesters of successful full-time study (general program). The honours program is also available as a Co-op degree.

A student may register in any of the 3 semesters (Summer, Fall, Winter). Since not all courses are offered in every semester and prerequisite dependencies must be observed, students are encouraged to consult the program counsellor for the B.Comp. program to plan an initial program of study or when considering modifications to the suggested schedule of studies list (below).
