Computer Science is a fundamental multi-disciplinary, high-technology discipline. Computer Science forms an integral and indispensable part of higher education. The Faculty of Computer Science provides high-quality education to our students in all areas of Computer Science and Informatics and conducts excellent research in specific areas of Computer Science, emphasizing major research programs with the support and participation of Industry and Government. Our modern award-winning Computer Science building and state-of-the-art equipment permit Computer Science to conduct primary research in Algorithms, Bioinformatics, Data Mining, Health Informatics, Human Computer Interaction, Information Retrieval, Network Centered Computing, Privacy and Security and Visualization.

The Faculty of Computer Science was formed on April 1, 1997, following the amalgamation of the Technical University of Nova Scotia (TUNS) and Dalhousie University. Its members came from the School of Computer Science at TUNS and the Computing Science Division of the Department of Mathematics, Statistics, and Computing Science at Dalhousie.

Significant growth has occurred in our formative early years. Our graduate and undergraduate programs include imaginative multi-disciplinary programs such as Electronic Commerce, Health Informatics, and Bioinformatics.
