Computer Science jobs and panel discussion on automotive industry with MPP Catherine Fife!

Computer Science positions (vehicle controls and Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS))

Location: Engineering 5 Student Design Centre

Time: Monday, Feb. 8th 2016 at 2:15p to 3:15p

There will be food and representatives from General Motors for student employment opportunities. They are looking specifically to hire Computer Science students in the area of vehicle controls and Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS).

The automotive industry is changing and is important for Ontario. It also is an industry known to have a large gender gap in its workforce. It is also a lot more than just engineering-its marketing, economics, environment and more. Lets come together and talk about the importance of the automotive industry in Ontario, the changing technology in the field, and how we can address the gender gap to ensure a diverse and creative workforce. 

You can also check out all the automotive student teams on campus and see the 2016 Camaro that will be turned into a Hybrid.

Come to UWAFT’s panel Q&A with MPP Catherine Fife! Catherine is serving her second term as MPP for Kitchener-Waterloo, is Finance and Treasury Board critic for the NDP, and sits on the Standing Committee on Finance and Economic Affairs and Ontario Bioscience Innovation Organization all-party caucus. 

Also on the panel will be Ross McKenzie, managing director of WatCAR, Stefanie Bruinsma, power-train engineer for GAIA, and Daniel van Lanen, project manager for UWAFT.

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.
