Undergraduate research opportunities

The Department of Computer Science has an active, internationally-recognized research program. We encourage undergraduate students to get involved in Computer Science research.

Why should undergraduate students get involved with research?

  • The chance to experience cutting-edge Computer Science.
  • Earning credit (COMP 4520, Undergraduate Honours Project).
  • Learning what graduate school may be like and considering a MSc or PhD.
  • A fantastic way to earn a strong reference letter from a professor.
  • The chance to earn research scholarships.

To learn more, check out undergraduate research opportunities at the Faculty of Science and explore the list of Computer Science potential supervisors for Faculty of Science Undergraduate Student Research Awards (USRAs).
