ABOUT THE PROGRAM

Computer Science and Mathematics is a two-year pre-university DEC program that prepares students to pursue university-level studies in computer science, actuarial science, mathematics, computer gaming, information systems, fundamental sciences, and/or engineering.

The Computer Science and Mathematics profile, of our Science DEC, provides students with a strong background in chemistry and physics and a developed foundation in mathematics and computer science.

In this program, we prepare students for many cutting-edge university study options by training them in the fundamentals of mathematics, computer science, and programming, with a specific focus on:

  • Introductory programming
  • Data structures and object-oriented programming
  • Program development for a graphical environment
  • Discrete mathematics

    WHAT WILL YOU LEARN?

    • Fundamental foundations in mathematics, computer science, and programming to give you as many options for university studies as possible
    • Focus on introductory programming, data structures, object-oriented programming, program development for a graphical environment, and discrete mathematics.

     

    UNIQUE BILINGUAL Option*: DEC 200.FR

    At TAV College, we offer students the option of completing their general education courses in French, while completing their program-specific courses in English. For example, if you want to study in the Science program with the bilingual option, you will be able to complete all your science-related courses in English. At the same time, your general education courses – language of instruction and literature, humanities, elective courses, and physical education – will be in French. Of course, the English as a second language course will be in English.

    *Note that this option is only available for our pre-university DEC programs.

    EXTRACURRICULAR ACTIVITIES

    In addition to our state-of-the-art physics, biology, and chemistry labs, students in our Science programs also have access to our 3D printing room, the opportunity to participate in national-level math and science competitions as well as the opportunity to join the TAV College Robotics Club.

    Additionally, the Science DEC programs at TAV College are actively engaged in cutting-edge research , in collaboration with McGill University, Polytechnique Montreal, and Concordia University. Our students have the opportunity to participate in research activities and do summer internships at high-profile universities.
