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.
Advising information for the CS-UT program can be accessed at:
http://www2.mtroyal.ca/~ppospisil/advising.html

Included in this information is
1. an advising powerpoint presentation,
2. schedule of courses reserved for CS students, and
3. transfer information for degree completion to the University of Calgary which is useful when choosing your option courses. 

Transfer information can also be accessed online through transferalberta.alberta.ca. Unfortunately, the online version is incomplete so the combination of both hardcopy and online should be used together.  These will be required in order to ensure that the options courses taken at MRU will transfer to the U of C.

Options are courses are non-computer science courses, but are necessary for graduation. Your advisor encourages you to take courses that interest you. There are no recommended options beyond those stated in the advising session slides, so asking what you should take as options will result in being referred to the advising slides reference above. Please read through this information carefully. 

Questions can be emailed to the CS-UT academic advisor at ppospisil@mtroyal.ca
Your Computer Science advisor, Paul Pospisil, is here to support you with your start in the program and throughout your time at Mount Royal.
