Statistics and Computer Science
This program provides students with a solid training in both computer science and statistics together with the necessary mathematical background. As statistical endeavours involve ever increasing amounts of data, some students may want training in both disciplines. The Honours program is a challenging program providing students with a solid training in both computer science and statistics suitable for entry into graduate school in either discipline.
