Diploma in Computer Science

Computing affects virtually everything. 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.

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.

Our expansive computer science program offers two diplomas in addition to our seven bachelor’s degree programs and graduate degree programs:

Diploma in Computer Science

This two-year program (60 credit hours) is designed for professionals seeking to upgrade in areas related to computer science. Courses are offered at times convenient to off-campus students, as well as in the traditional day slots.

Completing the diploma takes two years, on average. If you already have a university degree, completion may take only one year.

Post-Diploma Bachelor of Science in Computer Science

This program is available to graduates of the two-year diploma programs in Computer Systems Technology and Computer Information Systems from Saskatchewan Polytechnic. It is an opportunity to obtain a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Science from the University of Regina. To be eligible, you must have completed the diploma within the last 10 years. Graduates of other diploma programs in these areas may also be considered for admission.
