Computer Science, Mathematics & Statistics (HBSc)

Student in Finance Lab


Mind MapDo you want to build robots and develop autonomous systems? Interested in finding and patching vulnerabilities in computing systems? Are you fascinated by the possibilities of machine learning in data science? Whether considering a career in industry or graduate school, our programs will give you the skills you need and teach you to think analytically and creatively.

Students studying programs in Computer Science, Mathematics, and Statistics gain insights from all three disciplines, making them a versatile problem solver. Undergraduate students work closely with professors and graduate students in a supportive environment for a well-rounded learning experience. Upper-year students also get to stretch their creativity, entrepreneurial spirit, and technical knowledge with opportunities to create products with commercial potential.

Entry to the Computer Science, Mathematics & Statistics admission category is gained directly from high school. Applicants who have completed any postsecondary studies (including studies at other divisions at the University of Toronto) are not eligible for admission.
