Computer Science goes way beyond “coding”. At the University of Calgary, it has always been much more than just writing programs to make machines perform algorithms. Computer Scientists are problem solvers. Computer Scientists create communities. We help to build the infrastructures for social networks; we also work on solutions to protect our personal data; make data communication secure across a wide variety of “communication networks”; we build solutions to visualize information; we work on tools that help to make decisions by asking smarter questions, and bring more and more data into our decision making.

Join us, and become an ambassador of Computer Science. Learn more about Computer Science as a student; we love to share our passion with you. Learn how to not only use computational tools, but how to work in teams, share ideas, present, communicate — in short, join creative teams that make a positive difference.

Following our Faculty of Science’s motto “Curiosity Drives Discovery”, we as Computer Scientists create computational “Discovery Tools” and “Think Tools”. Welcome to our world!
