The Department of Physics and Computer Science at Laurier is a multidisciplinary department with faculty backgrounds in computer science, engineering, mathematics and physics.
Our programs are intended for students who are interested in technology. Not sure which program is for you? Does more than one program sound interesting? All of our single-degree programs have a common first year consisting of computer science, physics, mathematics, electronics and an elective of your own choice. Our interdisciplinary first year allows you to switch programs at the end of your first year without losing any momentum or time; you can’t make a wrong choice.
Although exposure to high school computer science and physics is useful, our first-year computer science and physics courses will provide you with the required background. (You’ll have to work a little harder, but we understand not all students have the opportunity to take these courses at their high school.) No matter which program you choose, you’ll benefit from our smaller class sizes and the integrated laboratory component.
In combination with Laurier’s School of Business and Economics, we also offer 2 double-degree programs: Business and Computer Science and Business and Computing and Computer Electronics, which allow you to complete 2 degrees with co-op in 5 years.
PHI is a Laurier club geared towards students in Computer Science, Physics and Mathematics. The club enhances academic spirit by sponsoring talks on new technologies, running exam review sessions, and providing tutorial support. PHI also arranges social activities such as PI Day, and sponsors intramural sports teams.
