e-Capstone Pilot - live this Winter Term

New year, new term and new opportunities for Computer Science students at the University of Waterloo! This winter term brings upper year and graduate students in the Cheriton School of Computer Science the opportunity to explore the application and commercial potential of their academic projects or other passion projects they might be currently pursuing. They can do that by participating in the e-Capstone initiative which will guide them through the process of evaluating important problems, critically assessing the feasibility of an idea, testing assumptions with potential users, building a proof-of-concept and ultimately pitching their solution to a general audience. Times have changed. It used to be that if you worked diligently and completed your tasks on time, with minimal supervision, you’d be considered a high performer. While that’s still true, self-starters - people who are willing to take risks and come up with creative solutions - are the ones who will thrive in our curren

UWaterloo 'Zero Experience' student program, Winter 2021

If you want a great career, you need to stand out from the crowd. That’s where  the Zero Experience , a student program offered by UW’s Problem Lab, comes into play. You’ll build a network of experts to support you, solve problems affecting millions of people, and learn how to make your visions a reality. There is no other guided experience in UW that offers these benefits – if you’re a student and want to tap into your innovation potential to become more employable, we’d be excited to welcome you. The only time commitment is a 3hr workshop (Mondays 6-9pm ET) and 1hr of individual goals to accomplish every week. That’s it. We know school can be busy and stressful, and we’ve accounted for that within the Zero Experience. Workshops are fast paced and full of team projects, unique life insights, Q&As with industry leaders, and more. The pandemic has made building a career, meeting new friends, and capitalizing on university far more difficult. We want to give you the tools to bu
