Honors in Computing Science Requirements


Notes:


  1. CMPUT 274  can serve as a substitute for CMPUT 174 . CMPUT 275  can serve as a substitute for CMPUT 175  and CMPUT 201 .
  2. If CMPUT 399  is taken, at least 3 units of the 18 units from any 300- and 400-level CMPUT course requirement must be at the 400 level.
  3. Upper level CMPUT courses may require specific CMPUT, MATH or STAT courses as prerequisites. These prerequisites must be considered when choosing Science options.
