Rotman International Trading Competiton

The Rotman International Trading Competition (RITC) is an annual event where competing teams of students and faculty from across the globe participate in a unique three day conference.  This year it will be held from Thursday February 20th, 2014 to Saturday February 22nd, 2014.

RITC presents teams with challenges that are pertinent to current market trends. While past competitions have been very successful, they continually improve on past cases and introduce new ones. After adopting the Rotman Interactive Trader (RIT) platform in the 2006 competition and receiving overwhelmingly positive feedback, they strive further utilize RIT's newly added features to offer more variety in their trading cases and a better trading experience.

Not only will you have an opportunity to utilize your skills, knowledge, and acumen, but you will have the opportunity to meet and network with faculty and students from around the globe!

We are looking for a team of students (5) who want to go and represent the University of Waterloo as the undergrad team.  This is a trading competition but is heavily slanted towards topics involving algo trading and that sort of thing.  We have had an undergrad team there for the last couple of years and have done well in past.

If you are interested in submitting an application either individually or as a a team of four individuals, please submit a short (1/2 page) informational statement as to why you want to go and please provide bios (with student numbers)  for each student.  You may construct your team from any faculty.  This may all be submitted to the Math Business Office (M3 2001) during regular business hours (Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m.) by October 29, 2013.  Please note that if you need to submit them after hours please email us at and we shall ensure that there is an envelope left outside our office pinned to our bulletin board so you can slip it under the door.  The next day when we return we shall email you so that you can rest assured we have received it.

Please note that though you may submit a team it may be modified to incorporate other individuals if we perhaps see a better fit for the competition.

All the best and wishing you great success on your midterms,

Math Business and Accounting

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.

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?

How about choosing CS 493 during course selection?

Want the chance to invent something and receive course credit? Want to refine your ideas for your start-up before you graduate? Want to win prizes?
CS 493/494 are the courses for you! Beginning in Fall 2018, CS majors will be able to take a two-course sequence that will take you from project ideation and selection to implementation and demonstration, to testing and a final “demo day”. Projects may range from new software systems, to contribute to existing open-source projects, to research projects. This will all be completed with a team of 3-5 members.
The first prize of $15K has been generously donated by CS alumnus, Sam Pasupalak, and the second prize of $10K has been provided by Microsoft. Prizes will be awarded as part of Demo Day at the end of CS 494.
