University of Saskatchewan Department of Computer Science

Welcome to the Department of Computer Science

CS is all about people!

We are:

  • Students, fascinated by the transformational potential of computing in the world;
  • Faculty, who undertake primary research in the field and share our discoveries (and the process by which we made them) with our students; and
  • Staff, who support the efforts of students, researchers and teachers alike in the delivery of our programs of enquiry and instruction.

Together, we explore our discipline to discover new ways in which computing can change the lives of people everywhere!
