Insight Data Engineering Fellowship Program

Are you a graduating BS, MS or PhD student or professional in engineering, math or computer science looking to transition to a career in big data infrastructure engineering? Do you want a career that leverages your engineering and CS fundamentals in the fast-growing, in-demand, technically challenging field of big data?

Silicon Valley technology companies like Facebook, Square, Microsoft, Palantir and many others are hiring data engineers to help them store and efficiently query the terabytes of data they collect everyday. While the amount of data produced is growing exponentially, there is a severe shortage of top engineering talent to build the infrastructure and data pipelines necessary to to extract insights from this data.

The Insight Data Engineering Fellows Program is a professional training fellowship designed to help engineers from various backgrounds, as well as mathematicians, and computer scientists, transition to careers in data engineering.
  • Fully funded, 6 week, full-time, data engineering training fellowship in Silicon Valley this summer.
  • Self-directed, project-based learning (*no classes!*) under the guidance of top industry data engineers.
  • Alumni network of 70 Insight Fellows who are now data scientists and data engineers at Facebook, LinkedIn, Microsoft, Twitter, Square, Netflix, Airbnb, Palantir, Jawbone and many others.
  • Interview at top technology companies hiring data engineers at the end of the fellowship.

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).
