to submit a FULL APPLICATION which meets the requirements of the School of Computer Science, as detailed
Admission to our graduate programs is handled by a committee and their selection is based on a comparison against several other applicants. Members of the committee will look at your full package and will require you to have an outstanding academic record, well defined research interests as indicated in your statement of purpose, a demonstration of very solid research potential and strong reference letters. If your application meets these requirements it will be viewed by professors whose research interests are closest to yours. Publications in international conferences and/or journals will be viewed as an asset.
If your interests are in medical imaging, computer vision, robotics, control, artificial intelligence,
or machine learning you might consider applying as well to the
Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering and to the
Department of Biomedical Engineering
to maximize your chances. Several colleagues in these departments are carrying out research in these and related areas.
