Business and Computing & Computer Electronics
Business and Computing & Computer Electronics at Laurier
Computing & Computer Electronics is an interdisciplinary program combing computer science, electronics, mathematics and physics to develop strong software skills, superb analytical skills, and an appreciation for the physical and electronic foundations of current and future technologies.
Combinimg Computing & Computer Electronics with Laurier’s strong Bachelor of Business Administration degree creates opportunity for graduates that are virtually unlimited.
- Laurier is one of Canada’s leading business schools. Although one of the largest business schools in the country, our School of Business & Economics places importance on its smaller class sizes and sense of community on campus.
- Laurier’s Department of Physics & Computer Science is a small multidisciplinary department whose faculty members’ diverse backgrounds combine to deliver traditional programs such as Computer Science and Physics, as well as unique programs in Computing & Computer Electronics and Photonics. Programs in the department also have small class sizes and extensive laboratory components.
- Skills in database and Internet computing are especially valued as marketing diversifies from print and broadcast media to new technologies. Combining Business Administration with a Computer Science degree creates a “total package” graduate, combining technical know-how, analytical skills and business expertise.
