Undergraduate School on Experimental Quantum Information Processing


Attention Undergrads:
 
Delve into the cutting-edge laboratories at the University of Waterloo’s Institute for Quantum Computing during an innovative summer program that puts you at the forefront of science and technology.
 
The Undergraduate School on Experimental Quantum Information Processing (USEQIP) is a one-of-a-kind opportunity to work with the tools to harness and exploit the quantum world. You’ll learn from leading experts in the field at the Institute for Quantum Computing — one of the world’s largest research facilities devoted to quantum information processing.
 
The mixture of lectures and over 25 hours of experimental workshops offered at USEQIP are aimed at undergraduate students of engineering, physics, chemistry, computer science and math, though all interested students are invited to apply. 
 
Twenty students will be accepted to the two-week program (from May 27th to June 7th 2013), with all travel, meal and housing costs funded by the Institute for Quantum Computing and their partners.
 
The program will include introductory lectures and hands-on workshops about such topics as: spin, superconducting and optical qubits, quantum cryptography, quantum error correction, quantum algorithms, decoherence and much more. Moreover, interested students can also apply for a summer research assistantship following the program.
 
The deadline for applications is March 4th, 2013.

Enrollment caps have been restored for CS courses

As per the course selection policy, enrollment caps for all CS courses have been returned to their actual class size. If the class or section is full then it means that you will need to wait for another student to drop it. You have until 11.59 p.m. on Monday May 14 to add courses.

The following courses still have waiting lists and department consent applied so you will NOT be able to add these courses.

Course enrollment for Spring 2018

Appointments for course enrollment began on Monday 26 March and open enrollment begins on Wednesday 28 March.

For students trying to add CS courses, we encourage you to review the course selection page.

COURSE ENROLLMENT
In Computer Science,  we drop the enrolment caps by approximately 15% of the total enrolment number for the course to give advisors room to handle special cases. We will return the enrolment caps to their actual size in the second week of classes after we have had time to deal with the special cases. This will occur on Friday, May 4, 2018, (we don't know the precise time) and remaining space will be available on a first-come-first-served basis only if the section isn't already at its enrolment total. WHAT IS A SPECIAL CASE?
1. Students who selected courses but something went wrong because of: enrollment capacity in a course **a time conflict **an academic enrolment block was applied after course selectiondropping or failing a course after course selection** Please re…

CS/Data Science/Digital Hardware option transfers NOW OPEN

The CS Undergraduate Advising Office has opened applications for CS transfers for Fall 2017. The online application is available at https://oat.uwaterloo.ca/formsand will be open from Tuesday, December 5 until Sunday, December 31, 2017, at 11.59 p.m.

We're accepting applications for:

Transfer from Math to CS - at a minimum, must have taken CS 136 or be taking it in Fall 2017.Transfer from CS to BCS (Data Science) - must have taken STAT 231 or be taking it in Fall 2017.Transfer from CS to CS/Digital HardwareAdding a Joint CS to an out-of-faculty planTransfer from outside of Math to CS (pending approval from Math)Answers to common questions about the transfer process can be found in the CS FAQs (particularly #2 and #151).
