    Meet A Computer Engineer
    Wednesday, October 14th, 2015 – ATCO Classroom, ETLC

Wonder what it’s like after graduation? Come meet some of our Alumni and ask them about their time in school and in the work force!

We have a great panel that will be meeting in ATCO Design Lab on October 14th at 5pm. There will questions, students and free PIZZA!
GARMIN Information Session
Tuesday, October 20th at 6:30 pm – ETLC E1-003

Target Audience: All 2016 Graduates and Co-op Students from Computer, Electrical, and Mechanical Engineering, and Engineering Physics.

Garmin is one of the world’s leading professional navigation and wearable technology companies with a focus in developing, designing and supporting superior products that are sought out for their innovative use of technology. Garmin Cochrane home of Dynastream Innovations Inc., a subsidiary of Garmin International, focuses on wireless and personal monitoring technologies. Through its mission and vision Garmin Cochrane finds success in providing interoperable, ultra-low power wireless communication and personal monitoring sensors to solve complex problems and make people’s lives safer, healthier and more enjoyable.

Garmin Cochrane is an engineering hub for a diverse group of talented individuals. Whether you’re a mechanical engineer or interested in developing software using C, C++, Assembly Java, C# or more, we are interested in meeting you. During the Information Session you will learn about the history, the culture and the work environment of the company. You will also learn about some of the amazing projects that past co-op students have worked on and get a better understanding of what you would potentially work on during your co-op at Garmin. We will be demonstrating some of the latest products that have been developed in Cochrane and you will be able to test a few of the products out yourself. If you are an engineering student with an interest in wearable technology and fitness related gadgets come check us out!

WISEST SET Conference
Saturday, November 7th, 2015

The SET (Science, Engineering, and Technology) Conference hosted by WISEST is a fun day that will show grades 10-12 high school girls the diverse career options in science, engineering, and technology. This full-day conference (with lunch included) allows participants to experience real lab environments through hands-on lab activities. This year it will be held on Saturday, November 7th, 2015.

If you are interested in strengthening science and society through diversity, and providing opportunity to our SET students, there are several volunteer opportunities available for the SET Conference.
For more information and the positions available, click here .
B-Squared Opportunity

The organization BSquared is developing a website to connect the university together. Their featured map for the U of A, can zoom into as close as far as desks within the library. People doing study groups, may describe their table as open/private and also what subject matter they are studying to invite or not invite people to join them. The website is 80% developed but they are looking for computing science students to help them finish up and maintain it. They are offering limited equity for 3 students.

For more information contact:

Come to CMPUT 469 at 5pm on Thursday at RATT. It's a fun event put on by UACS (Comp Sci's) where you'll get to meet people and drink! It's lots of fun and you deserve a break.

Also, UACS pays for FREE APPETIZERS!!!!
Who could say no to free appetizers?
UACS Programming Contest

The Undergraduate Association of Computing Science is holding a programming contest, open to all Undergraduate students and First Year M.Sc Students, on October 24th from 11:00 - 3:00.
