Why a Master's Degree

For those students contemplating advanced studies in computer science at UBC, completing a master's degree before continuing to the PhD program confers several advantages. The two-year period of the master's first helps students decide whether a research career is the right career choice for them. If it is, taking this time helps give them the skills needed to pursue independent research. Second, the research experience gained can be very valuable as student work toward picking a PhD topic, as most professors in the department prefer that students shoulder this choice on their own.
Third, a student who completes a master's degree and decides to work in industry prior to embarking on the full PhD has the opportunity to apply his or her skills and master's level education in the field and to take advantage of jobs that have attractive starting salaries.

Master's Program

Each incoming master's student is assigned an advisor. The advisor is responsible for monitoring the student's progress until the student finds a thesis supervisor. Students have two semesters to meet faculty members and explore research opportunities before making a decision on a thesis supervisor. This provides students with a great opportunity to find the best research interest and personality match among our large and diverse faculty.

The UBC Department of Computer Science offers three avenues to a Master's Degree. The first of these is the Thesis Master's, where the major focus is on the student's own research. The second is the Comprehensive Course Master's, intended for students planning to continue to the Ph.D. program at UBC. The third option strikes a balance between the research focus of the Thesis Master's and the course focus of the Comprehensive Course Master's. The department generally does not encourage students to take advantage of this option, but does make it available in unusual circumstances.

The MSS is a graduate level degree program administered through UBC's Institute for Computing, Information and Cognitive Systems (ICICS), in collaboration with the departments of Computer Science (Faculty of Science) and Electrical and Computer Engineering (Faculty of Applied Science). It is one of many graduate degrees offered through the Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies.

In 16 demanding months, MSS students complete a masters degree consisting of three terms of coursework (30 credits) and a mandatory four-month industry internship. At the end of the program, you will have gained a broad understanding of software systems development and implementation; not just from a programmer’s of software engineer’s viewpoint, but from a manager’s perspective as well.

The MSS program was designed specifically for people who hold a science or engineering degree in a field other than computer science or computer engineering. The program is an opportunity to expand your existing skills and develop them for a career in a software systems environment.

UBC’s internationally known faculty and its top-notch facilities provide the expertise and atmosphere – our students provide the desire and focus. We seek applicants that are mature, bright, and motivated individuals, and able to give full priority to their studies. The rigorous nature of the MSS program requires that students eliminate, as much as possible, all other studies and professional work during the course of the degree.

Data. Knowledge. Action: these three words symbolize steps in the data science value chain.

The UBC Master of Data Science curriculum covers all stages of this chain, providing you with skills to focus on the “knowledge” section. Over 10 months, you will learn how to extract data for use in experiments, how to apply state-of-the-art techniques in data analysis and how to present extracted knowledge effectively to domain experts.

Data science can open your mind—and career path—to infinite possibilities. There is a growing need in many fields for people who can apply computational and statistical techniques to data and then effectively communicate results from analyses to various stakeholders.

The new UBC Master of Data Science is a professional program developed by the combined expertise of the UBC departments of Computer Science and Statistics to help meet this need and give students a fast track to a great career.

Utilizing descriptive and prescriptive techniques, students extract and analyze data from both unstructured and structured forms and then communicate the findings of those analyses in ways to enable organizations to make informed decisions based on data.

What Makes The Program Unique?

The program provides practical, real-world-applicable experience via integrating real-world data sets across the courses.

Many other programs typically focus on producing graduates that are specialized either in statistical methods, or computational methods, but not both. UBC’s new Master of Data Science program enables graduates to span both the statistical and computational perspectives and effectively communicate those results to different stakeholders.

Career Options

Candidates graduate with the skills to extract and analyze data and then communicate the findings of those analyses in compelling and clear ways to help organizations put data to work. The UBC Master of Data Science program gives you experience with a variety of data across a range of domains, and therefore exposure to a multitude of potential career avenues.

Our world would grind to a halt without reliable and efficient software. Global financial markets, regulation of power generation, telecommunications, health care and public transport are all controlled with computer software, as is the manufacturing of equipment, vehicles and household appliances. The need for software engineers with the broad perspective offered by this program cannot be overstated: graduates will be in demand across all industry sectors.

The Master of Engineering Leadership (MEL) in Dependable Software Systems is an intensive one-year degree program for software engineers who want to explore the principles and techniques for maintaining the integrity and reliability of software systems in diverse application areas. The project-based curriculum covers all stages of the industry value chain. Graduates will confidently translate research ideas into practice while developing a deep understanding of how software-intensive systems are engineered through collaboration. While 60 per cent of your classes will focus on your technical specialization, the remaining 40 per cent are leadership development courses that will enhance your business, communication and people skills. Delivery of the management and leadership courses are in partnership with UBC's Sauder School of Business.

Funding Sources

The Faculty of Applied Science offers a limited number of $5,000 merit-based awards to MEL students. All applicants who submitted their application before July 1 are automatically considered for this award. You do not need to submit a separate application. The merit-based awards are given to selected applicants and only the successful recipients will be notified before the program starts in January.

Aside from the merit-based award, there no other scholarships, grants or funding offered by UBC for MEL students.

Career Options

With their broad foundation for analyzing and addressing software dependability issues across many different industry sectors, graduates of this program prepares students for software jobs as well as roles in automotive, aviation and health care industries. Graduates will be highly sought after by employers locally, nationally and internationally, with government and industry employers constantly seeking experts in this field.
