Why Hire U of T Computer Science Graduates?
As the first computer science department established in Canada, University of Toronto’s Department of Computer Science is characterized by renowned faculty across the breadth of the discipline, and by excellence in teaching and research. It has been acclaimed as the foremost computer science department in Canada and among the best in North America.
Our curriculum balances the latest technologies with fundamental principles that will have lasting value. Teamwork, project management, and communication skills are stressed throughout. Students can round out their technical studies in computer science with courses in virtually any other area of intellectual inquiry.
Many of our students participate in research and development projects, working closely with faculty on significant projects that enhance their technical, intellectual, and project management skills.
Professional Experience Year Internship
The Professional Experience Year internship program offers employers the opportunity to recruit computer science students for 12- to 16-month paid internships that start between May and September each year. The length of these internships allows organizations a better return on their training investment, while students are able to work on longer projects requiring a higher level of responsibility. This year 71 computer science students are participating.
Computer Science Co-op Program
The Co-operative Specialist program in computer science at the U of T Scarborough equips students with a foundation in computer science and data management, while also putting their skills to the test in an applied setting. Since its inception in 1988, the program has grown and places on average 120 third- and fourth-year students on four-month paid work terms annually.
Technical Skills Developed
Our graduates go on to exciting and successful careers in industry. One is the former vice-president, Development and Marketing of Microsoft, who now runs a venture capital company. One has won an Academy Award for his work in animation and another has won a Technical Academy Award. Still, another received the ACM Doctoral Dissertation Award for the best computer science PhD thesis in the world.
