Students may be registered for an inter-disciplinary MSc or PhD in two departments of the University. This requires the agreement of both departments and joint supervision from the two Departments.
Students have enrolled in interdisciplinary programs in Computer Science and Mechanical Engineering, Computer Science and Electrical and Computer Engineering, Computer Science and Mathematics & Statistics, Computer Science and Philosophy, and Computer Science and Art.
The interdisciplinary program is intended for exceptionally well-qualified students who have a research program that necessarily bridges two disciplines. Those applicants with an interest in this possibility should indicate this on their application forms. It is important to to have already contacted potential supervisors in the departments involved before submitting the program application.
For more information about the policies associated with your interdisciplinary program, please refer to UCalgary's explore program pages.
