The Faculty of Computer Science traces its history to the School of Computer Science at TUNS and the Computer Science Division of the Department of Mathematics, Statistics and Computer Science at Dalhousie University.
Upon its founding, the Faculty of Computer Science took residence on the 15th and 16th floors of the Maritime Centre until the new Computer Science Building was completed in the fall of 1999. The new building was designed by Brian MacKay-Lyons and was featured in Canadian Architect in March 2000. It was renamed "Goldberg Computer Science Building" in June 2008 in recognition of a donation by Seymour Schulich and his wife, Tanna Goldberg-Schulich.
The Goldberg School of Computer Science offers several diverse undergraduate programs including:
- Bachelor of Computer Science (with/without Honours)
In general, the philosophy of the undergraduate program is to build a solid foundation of mathematics and computer science during the first three years of the program, allowing students more flexibility in fourth year.
