Program Advising

Computer Science - University Transfer

It is important that you take each required course as indicated in order to have the correct prerequisites for each subsequent semester. Many of these courses are only offered in the semester specified. When multiple sections of the same course are offered in a semester, choose a section that is restricted to Computer Science students. This will help ensure that you are in the same MATH and PHIL classes as your Computer Science colleagues.

All core courses must be taken in the sequence shown. Your core courses are your priority.

Always register for these courses first and then build the rest of your schedule around them.

Year One, Semester 1 [Fall], Sept. – Dec.
» COMP 1631 – Introduction to Computer Science I
» MATH 1203 – Linear Algebra for Scientists and Engineers
» MATH 1200 – Calculus for Scientists I
» Option* (recommended PHIL 1175)
» Option*

Year One, Semester 2 [Winter], Jan. – Apr.
» COMP 1633 – Introduction to Computer Science II
» MATH 1271 – Discrete Mathematics
» PHIL 1179 – Introduction to Symbolic Logic
» Option* (recommended ENGL 2263)
» Option*

* SELECTING OPTIONS: Be sure to choose courses which transfer to the University of Calgary for credit. To help determine this, you can search the Alberta Transfer Guide online. This will be covered in your advising session.

If you have already completed your first-year courses and hope to enroll directly in second year courses, you must contact your advisor to seek further advising as soon as possible.
No special hardware or software purchases are required. Computing labs are provided for the completion of all Computer Science course work and the necessary software is provided on the lab PCs. Students are welcome to bring their own devices to campus, but this is not mandatory.
An advising hold is placed on the registration of each newly admitted Computer Science student. You will be not be able to register until you have attended an advising session.  Please choose one of the following options: 


April 25, 2017 - 5:30 - 6:30 pm in B220
May 16, 2017 - 5:30 - 6:30 pm in B220
June 13, 2017 - 5:30 - 6:30 pm in B220

To register for one of these, please call 403.440.6149.

Your Computer Science advisor is Paul Pospisil. He is here to support you with your start in the program and throughout your time at Mount Royal. If you have any questions about program details and course selection, please contact him at 403.440.6249 or ppospisil@mtroyal.ca.
