Bachelor of Science (BSc) in Software Systems Development

Computing affects virtually everything. All industries, organizations, and activities are facilitated and enhanced by computing. Many big decisions in the world today are already being made by computers, from what appears on your social media feed, to what stocks get bought and sold, to self-driving cars and speech recognition phones. If you understand computing, you will be able to elevate your career to a higher level.

In our computer science programs, you will learn how to program computers for simple and complex tasks on the web, on mobile, in virtual reality, and in the cloud. You will learn how computers and computer systems work, from the basics of logic to the complexities of big data analytics. You will also learn about security and integrity of networked systems, and how algorithms are assisting (and in some cases, replacing) today’s decision makers.

The University of Regina's Bachelor of Science and Bachelor of Science Honours degrees in Computer Science are accredited by the Computer Science Accreditation Council (CSAC). The Department of Computer Science was one of the first four departments in Canada to be accredited in 1982. We are the only computer science department in Canada to have been accredited continuously since then.

At the U of R, you can take one of seven bachelor’s degree programs in computer science:
