Nspire Innovation Network: Promoting NBTC14

Attention students! Does the prospect of taking charge of your career and destiny sound appealing to you? Have you ever thought of possible products and services but didn’t know what to do with these million dollar ideas? Has the prospect of becoming an entrepreneur or being part of a start-up ever crossed your mind?  

Nspire presents to you, the National Business and Technology Conference, a two-day conference promoting student entrepreneurship in the business and technology space.

Currently, the Computer Science department has agreed to subsidize the first 10 CS students that apply for the subsidy in the amount of $50. This $50 will help to offset the cost of registration to NBTC14 as well as possible hotel costs.

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

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?
