Graduate and Post-Graduate Research

UNB's Computer Science Faculty offers students the opportunity to conduct original research. Student research is supervised by faculty members, usually through a faculty supervisor. Students may make arrangements with a supervisor before starting their degree, or shortly after arrival. Selection of a research topic is done in collaboration with the supervisor. Most supervisors have research funding designated for specific projects.

A list of faculty members in our GAU can be found here.

Though master's students typically start in September, exceptions can be made for students with research experience and a prearranged supervisor and project.

The computer science faculty has clusters of expertise in:

  • Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning
  • Computational Science
  • Data
  • High-Performance Computing
  • Optimization and Algorithmics
  • Software Engineering
  • Systems and Architecture
  • Security and Privacy
  • Telecommunications

Faculty conduct their own research, and Master's or PhD students may choose a research topic based on the research being conducted by their supervisor or on other criteria. 

The Information Technology Center (ITC) acts as UNB's hub for research in computer science and houses many of our research labs. The ITC offers students with state-of-the-art equipment and access to UNB's top researchers in their specific fields.
