How is your degree going to set you apart? Western’s Diploma in Computer Science will give you the edge you need!

Computing technologies are impacting science, engineering, medical and healthcare, business and so much more. Scientific discoveries are rapidly accelerating as the result of computerized instrumentation and simulations that generate huge amounts of data that can be analyzed to provide insight into scientific challenges. Engineers are facing new challenges with sensors being embedded into our physical space (e.g., cars, buildings, urban areas) that generate data to control systems found within the physical spaces.Medical and health care are changing as more information about a patient is kept online, thus enabling data mining techniques to be used to make discoveries that could improve outcomes.Businesses rely on data analysis to make predictions.Often the effective use of computing tremendously benefits from having domain expertise.

Who is this for?
If you are a creative, critical thinker we will give you the computer science fundamentals to make effective use of computing technologies in your domain of expertise.

What is it?
