Taking your degree to the next level

With one-on-one attention from some of Canada's best researchers, you can contribute new research to the field of Computer Science.With one-on-one attention from some of Canada's best researchers in a well-established graduate program, you can contribute new research to the field of Computer Science.

The Faculty of Computer Science (FCS) at the UNB’s Fredericton Campus was the first computer science faculty in Canada, and our Master's program was established in 1968. Our students enjoy working and collaborating with top faculty who are nationally and internationally renowned in their field.  Our recent graduates have gone on to work at companies such as IBM, Ciena, Alcatel-Lucent and Ernst & Young, as well as to careers in academia.

We have 19 full-time research faculty in Fredericton, including a Canada Research Chair in Cybersecurity.  The Faculty has more than 20 laboratories, used for research and instruction in many areas of computer science, and we also have two Research Centres: the Information Security Centre of Excellence (ISCX) and the IBM Centre for Advanced Studies – Atlantic (CAS Atlantic). Researchers in the Department of Computer Science and Applied Statistics at the Saint John campus also participate in the UNB CS graduate programs.

Topics for research and instruction include: Artificial Intelligence;  Bioinformatics and Computational Science; Cloud Computing; Data Management, Analytics, and Mining; Embedded Systems; High Performance Computing; Human-Computer Interaction; Natural Language Processing; Networking, Data Communications, and Wireless; Optimization and Algorithmics; Security and Privacy; Software Engineering; Systems and Architecture.

At present the total research funding for the Faculty of Computer Science is approximately $10 million from NSERC, CFI, AIF, NBIF and other sources.
