A Computing major in Fundamental Computation explores the science and the principles that underlie all of computing. It provides broad training with the opportunity to focus on specific areas such as artificial intelligence, human-computer interaction, computing theory, and programming languages. From software developer to systems analyst, information architect to database administrator, graduates are well-prepared for any number of careers in the technology industry and beyond.
What follows is a list of the required unit credits for the Fundamental Computation program. This is a Computing Major stream and can be taken with a Minor in another subject. This information is meant as a guide and is subject to change. The precise and up-to-date requirements for Computing degree plans can be found online in the Arts and Science Calendar. In case of discrepancies, the calendar should be considered as the official definition.
Typical 4-years honours programs consist of 120 unit credits. A one-term course is worth 3 units, while a full year (two-term) course is worth 6 units. All courses listed below are 3 units unless specified with a /6.0 after the course code.
Admission to a degree program in the Faculty of Arts and Science from an Ontario Secondary School is based on the completion of the Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD). Please see Admissions for details.
Apply at the Ontario Universities Application Centre using the program code QD (Queen's University, Computing).
Upon completion of second year, students must declare that they are entering a Computing Major, but will not need to specify Fundamental Computation.
