Canadian Undergraduate Computer Science Conference!

The Canadian Undergraduate Computer Science Conference includes keynotes presented by a diverse array of professions related to the computer science field including university professors from around the country, entrepreneurs and professionals in the industry. These talks will allow students to gain a broader view of what is beyond their school environment as well as a chance to connect with the larger community.

In addition to attending the talks, we fully welcome students to present talks of their own to share their research, projects they’ve been working on or a topic of interest to them. The mornings will contain student talks, keynote speakers, and coffee breaks. We will be hosting a Women in Computer Science Dinner, with several panelists sharing their experiences followed by a discussion. The conference will conclude with a closing banquet, awards for best presentation, and a dance. 

For more information and to register, please go to Early Bird Registration closes May 24th and general registration closes June 1st, so please register today!

Students are also welcome to join us July 6th-8th for an "Optimization Summer School", put on by the UBCO Optimization team. This workshop will cover three topics: derivative-free optimization; surrogate modelling and global optimization techniques; and computational Convex Analysis. More information is available at

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?
