This program is designed for students with a strong interest in research in computer science who hold at least the equivalent of an undergraduate minor in CS. This program combines a strong course component with a research thesis. It is the usual (but not mandatory) entry point for students who wish to do a Ph.D., but is also the program of choice for students who want to find challenging and exciting jobs after their master's degree. Research in the school covers a broad range of areas, including:
Eligibility and Application Requirements
Job Prospects and Placements for Computer Science at McGill University, Montreal
Each student must meet annually with his/her supervisor or co-supervisors to assess the progress made during the previous year, and describe plans for the coming year. The progress form below must be filled by the student, discussed with the supervisor, and signed by both. A progress before must be filled each year. Excellent Masters students who intend to pursue doctoral studies can apply to be 'fast-tracked' to the Ph.D. program, after having completed two terms of course work in the master's program (normally 6 regular courses). Each fast-tracking application will be evaluated by the Ph.D. committee, in concert with the proposed Ph.D. supervisor, on a case-by-case basis. Evaluation criteria will include excellence of the academic record and achievements in research. M. Sc. students interested in fast-tracking to the Ph.D. program should discuss this option with their supervisor.
