The Master’s program in Computer Science at the University of Windsor was established in 1989. Since that time, the program has grown to become a strong and useful component which contributes significantly to both research and training of high quality professionals. [+]

The Master's Program The Master’s program in Computer Science at the University of Windsor was established in 1989. Since that time, the program has grown to become a strong and useful component which contributes significantly to both research and training of high quality professionals. The number of applicants to our program is at a level which permits the selection of excellent students possessing varied undergraduate and graduate backgrounds. A rigorous qualifying process for Master’s I candidates from non-computer science backgrounds permits excellent students, many of whom already hold post-graduate degrees in other disciplines, to take a core of undergraduate courses before achieving Master’s II status. Although most students pursue their research programs and courses within Computer Science, opportunities exist for courses to be taken and interdisciplinary research to be conducted in collaboration with Faculty in other academic units, including Mathematics, Physics, Electrical Engineering, Industrial and Mechanical Engineering and Business Administration. The number of Computer Science core graduate faculty members has increased from 15 to 23 since 1999. All of them are active in supervision and research. Most of them also offer graduate courses regularly. Collective and individual grant levels from NSERC and other agencies have increased by 151% since 1999. With the aid of research and equipment grants and allocations of support from the University of Windsor, an excellent centralized computing facility has been developed and maintained to serve the basic needs of the faculty and students. Each of the 20 graduate faculty members has her/his own graduate laboratory, which provides specialized research computing environments supportive of individual researcher needs. Since 1999, 168 students have completed the requirements for a Master’s degree. At present 75 students are working on their full-time M.Sc. degrees; 15 students are working for their Ph.D. degrees; and 7 are completing their M.Sc. degree on a part-time basis. M.Sc. in Computer Science with Optional Co-op In response to strong market demand, students’ interest, and the success of the pilot Co-op program held in Summer/Fall 2008 and Winter 2009, the School of Computer Science at the University of Windsor proposes a Co-op option for its current M.Sc. program in Computer Science. Students pursuing this option are anticipated to gain practical knowledge of the state-of-the-art technologies of software development by working in software companies in Canada and abroad. Some examples of companies hiring our M.Sc. Co-op students include IBM, RIM, among other top high-tech companies. The Co-op option enables graduate students in Computer Science to gain hands-on experience by working on different aspects of computer software systems in actual work environments, while maintaining the standards of the current research-based existing M.Sc. program. The addition of Co-op education helps students achieve the goals of enhanced academic studies, improved technical skills, and stronger career development. The work experience also helps students develop standards of practice adhering to computing professional ethics. The School of Computer Science and the Student Success Centre at the University of Windsor work closely with students to ensure that the Co-op education achieves its goal of enhancing academic learning with valuable industrial experience. Students eligible to participate in the proposed Co-op education must have successfully completed at least one semester of full-time study at the Master’s level in the School of Computer Science at the University of Windsor, which includes maintaining a good-standing status and fulfilling the requirement of attending regular departmental seminars. When students start the Co-op program, they have comprehensive knowledge in fundamental areas of Computer Science. They also acquire strong skills in software programming and development, and be exposed to theories in Computer Science as well as advanced tools and techniques currently used by industry. Students entering the Co-op placement work in a company for two terms, and must remain in the M.Sc. program for at least one term afterwards. [-]

Program Description Usually students in both the M2 and M1 program take 4 courses during the Fall semester (September through December) and 4 courses during Winter semester (January through April). There are no M1 courses during Summer semester (May through August). There are usually no M2 courses during Summer semester but M2 students may choose to write a Major Paper during Summer semester after completing the M2 Fall and Winter courses. Program M2 Masters Candidate Students will successfully complete 8 courses in order to graduate: Economics 501 – Microeconomic Theory I (required) Economics 502 – Macroeconomic Theory I (required) Economics 541 – Econometric Theory I (required) Plus Option Courses – 5 Economics Graduate courses. One of the 5 option courses can be a Major Paper. For their option classes, we recommend that students who plan to enter a Ph.D. program take: Economics 503 – Microeconomic Theory II Economics 504 – Macroeconomic Theory II Economics 542 – Econometric Theory II Economics 581 – Mathematical Economics Other option classes that could be offered: Economics 510 – Theory of International Economics Economics 516 – Labor Economics Economics 531 – Industrial Organization Economics 543 – Applied Econometrics Economics 550 – Monetary Theory Economics 580 – Economics of Strategic Behavior In some cases, option classes can be taken from other departments (notably from the Mathematics & Statistics department or the Odette School of Business), subject to approval by the Economics Graduate director. Program M1 Masters Qualifying This program involves one Qualifying year, covering economic theory and some applications, before entry into the M2 program. In the second year (the M2 year), candidates will pursue the conventional M.A. program as described above. Graduates of a three-year B.A. in Economics may also apply for the M1 program in lieu of an honours year in Economics. Usually, these 8 Courses must be taken during the Qualifying year: Economics 423 and 424 Advanced Microeconomics Economics 433 and 434 Advanced Macroeconomics Economics 313 and 414 Econometrics Economics 406 Mathematical Economics Economics 407 Senior Research Workshop A minimum required final grade of 70% is required to receive credit in each of these 8 courses. Following successful completion of these 8 courses, the student will advance to the M2 year as a Masters Candidate student for the second year of the program. The Economics Graduate Committee will decide if the applicant should be offered admission to the M1 or the M2 program, based on the applicant's academic background. How do I apply?
