Brock University has committed over $4,000,000 to our awards programs for 2018-19. International students pursuing undergraduate studies at Brock are eligible to receive awards and are subject to international tuition rates.
Computing and Solid-State Device Technology is a unique undergraduate program 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.
The faculty encourages and facilitates students' summer internship placement in relevant industrial positions.
This is an interdisciplinary program emphasizing 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.
Students are urged to give careful consideration to their choice of program, keeping in mind their areas of interest and capabilities, as well as their long-term career goals. Students should consult a faculty adviser when planning years 3 and 4 of the BSc programs.
The Computing and Solid-State Device Technology Co-op program combines academic and work terms over a four and one half year period. Students spend two years in an academic setting, where they acquire the necessary background prior to taking the first work placement. In addition to the current fees for courses in academic study terms, Co-op students are assessed an annual administrative fee (see the Schedule of Fees).
Students admitted to the Computing and Solid-State Device Technology Co-op program must follow the Co-op program. Failure to adhere to the schedule may result in removal from the Computing and Solid-State Device Technology Co-op program. Eligibility to continue is based on the student's major average and non-major average. A student with a minimum 70 percent major average and a minimum 60 percent non major will be permitted to continue. A student with a major average lower than 70 percent will not be permitted to continue in the Co-op program, but may continue in the Computing and Solid-State Device Technology non-Co-op program.
The Computing and Solid-State Device Technology Co-op program designation will be awarded to those students who have honours standing and who have successfully completed a minimum of twelve months of Co-op work experience.

Brock University is located in the heart of the Niagara Peninsula, home of natural beauty, amazing history, and world-famous attractions. Explore and enjoy wine country, arts, sports, recreational trails, festivals and more, only an hour from Toronto and just across the border from Buffalo.
In the late 1950s, there was growing public discussion about how Niagara should have its own university. Its residents wanted young people to get a good education without having to leave the area.
The grassroots sentiment became a movement when, in November 1957, the Allanburg Women’s Institute asked the Ontario government to “favourably consider the placing of a university in the Niagara Peninsula.”
Momentum grew. By fall 1962, the Brock Founders Committee was incorporated. It received approval to create a new university, then developed an administrative and academic plan. Then it began raising money.
After years of meetings and fundraising, Brock opened in September 1964. It had 127 students who attended class in a refurbished refrigeration factory at the foot of the Niagara Escarpment in St. Catharines. In 1966, the landmark Schmon Tower was completed, and faculties began moving “up the hill” to the University’s permanent home atop the Niagara Escarpment.
For the next 30 years, Brock sent thousands of graduates on to successful careers. It built a name for its personal quality of teaching afforded by attentive faculty and controlled class sizes. As the new millennium dawned, enrolment soared. Brock transformed from an undergraduate institute to a comprehensive university with flourishing research, graduate and doctoral programs.
The campus steadily expanded to keep pace with the demand for a Brock education. It’s a pattern that continues with the construction of world-class research labs, a landmark fine arts complex and an international centre.
Brock serves its community as a cultural, academic and recreational centre, bringing excellent facilities to the people who created the University all those years ago. We are committed to building our community and to fostering an environment that serves students and neighbours.
