Note(s)
1ITI1120 is a prerequisite for most further computer science courses (CSI). GNG1106 is recommended for students not taking further computer science courses (CSI).
2MAT1348 is a prerequisite for most second year computer science courses (CSI).
3The following courses are recommended as particularly useful: MAT3130, MAT3155, MAT3341, MAT3380, MAT3395, MAT4183, MAT4381, MAT4385, MAT4386, MAT4387, MAT4388.
4Out of the 18 elective course credits, some breadth in other sciences is recommended and particularly CHM1311.

This message is intended for students registered in the Faculty of Science. If the components of your program of study require common compulsory courses, you will have to replace the credits as follows:

1) 1000-level courses must be replaced with elective course credits;

2) 2000-level courses and above must be replaced with optional course credits from either discipline at the same level or above.

Please note that all programs in the Faculty of Science require a minimum of 12 elective course credits from the Faculty of Arts, the Faculty of Education, the Faculty of Law, the Faculty of Social Sciences or the Telfer School of Management. Once you have decided on the replacement courses, please inform the Office of Undergraduate Programs of the Faculty of Science by email at infosci@uOttawa.ca so we may amend your Rabaska audit accordingly.
