The goal of this program is to train students in core areas of Computer Science enhanced by curated specializations in Computer Science and relevant cognate areas. Computers are ubiquitous in life, society and the economy, and their application to new domains and tasks is continually growing. To help drive the application to new domains and maintain systems in those domains, knowledge of both computer science and the domain is required. This program is divided into a number of concentrations which provide curated course packages in computer science and other disciplines which complement each other and when synthesized coherent expertise.

Students who complete the program will be in demand in several industry sectors. The combined training in computer science and the diverse disciplines in the various concentrations will train students to work in sectors as diverse as mining and video games, agriculture and banking.

Please see the descriptions of each concentration for more details
