About the Faculty of Computer Science

A hotbed of creativity, innovation and collaboration

We are the first Canadian faculty of computer science, established in 1990, but our history with computers dates all the way back to 1959. The University of New Brunswick is home to sought after professors who are leaders in their respective fields. Students are taught by leading researchers who have a breadth of expertise across multiple computer science domains.

You have world experts within arms’ reach in their classrooms, computer labs and in public spaces.

Our faculty has partnerships with over 20 industry partners, including TD Bank, Bell Canada,
Siemens Canada and more.

A centre of experiential learning and entrepreneurial thinking

Our accredited co-op program gives students paid, hands-on experience and personal development. This option lays the foundation of your successful career and opens the possibility of receiving job offers upon graduation.

We are the only computer science program in Canada with a dedicated entrepreneurship space that provides mentoring and networking opportunities, workshops and one-on-one support for student entrepreneurs.

A research powerhouse

With $8.1 million in research funding over the past five years, we are one of New Brunswick’s strongest research faculties, with well-published faculty members, unique industry collaborations, and close links to government and the private sector.
