Computing and Solid-State Device Technology (CaST)

Computing and Solid-State Device Technology is a unique undergraduate program of studies combining a thorough training in physics and natural sciences with an extensive education in computing. It offers a four-year honours program leading to a Bachelor of Science in Computing and Solid-State Device Technology degree as well as a Co-Op option. The program emphasizes practical aspects of computing; use of computer-based and other solid-state electronic devices in control, manufacturing and research; and the skills needed to interface and use solid-state devices in real-world applications. Students participating in this program should expect a considerable lab load.

This is an interdisciplinary program with emphasis on the practical aspects of computing and applications of solid-state device technology. Students who want a deeper theoretical understanding might want to consider a Physics and Computer Science combined major program.
