Planning and Courses
This section covers information about the degree and secondary field programs and provides a guide to planning for the freshman and sophomore years.
Computer Science at UBC
The honor recognizes Carey for his contributions to design and engineering of high-performance and concurrent database systems.
Perhaps the most liberal answer, though, is that CS “has no exclusive domain of its own, and that its importance comes from the problems to which it is applied.” And therein lies the excitement. CS empowers you with tools and ideas that can be applied to practically any domain of interest to you, both in college and beyond.
Careers and Alumni
This section covers potential career paths for those with degrees in Computer Science and profiles SEAS alumni.
Ramesh Jain, Hal Stern and Gene Tsudik are recognized by the American Association for the Advancement of Science for contributions to their fields.
But CS is also, more generally, the study of information. How do you represent it? With what methods (aka algorithms) can you process it?
Clubs and activities provide students from all concentrations an opportunity to do everything from build robotic soccer bots to imagine and launch start-ups.
