WHEN: January 6th - January 10th
WHAT: Getting employed is stressful. The whole process of writing resumes, doing interviews, and integrating into the workplace can leave a lot of people lost and confused. Luckily, we've dedicated a whole week to help you start with your best foot forward. CompE Week is 5 days of on campus events that will help you navigate the computer engineering landscape. Resume reviews, mock interviews, and an opportunity to meet a Computer Engineer are just some of what you can expect to see. We hope to see you all there!

6) Leaders Prize Competition

WHO: Anyone interested in Aritificial Intelligence and Hackathons
WHEN: June 19th 2019
WHERE: Here
WHAT: Misinformation is rampant no matter where you look on the internet. Fact checkers and reputable news sources were a sufficient solution to keep well informed in the past, but this wave of fake news challenges that tradition. The Schulich Foundation invites you to tackle this problem with AI. Groups of up to 5 people are tasked with creating an AI that can evaluate the validity of the statement, and if possible, provide evidence. The winning team will claim the $1 milllion prize! This is a great experience to undertake. The competition is far off now, but it definatly worth your consideration!
