M.Sc and Ph.D.

Graduate studies are a central focus of the Department of Computer Science and our students engage in one of the most comprehensive programs of study in the country. Graduate students in our department develop research with internationally acclaimed faculty in all areas of computer science, and many interdisciplinary areas as well.

Acceptance of timely applications to our Research focused programs closed at 17:00 Eastern Standard Time (Toronto time) on Friday 18 December 2015. Referees have five days after that to submit their letters of reference. We are now processing complete and paid applications.

M.Sc. in Applied Computing (M.Sc.A.C.)

In September 2010, the University of Toronto launched a new Master of Science in Applied Computing program to educate the next generation of technical leaders, innovators, and entrepreneurs as they learn how to turn research into practical applications. Students will spend the first eight months studying with some of Canada's leading Computer Science researchers, and another eight months in an industrial internship, where they will apply what they have learned to real-world problems.
