Using your Computer Science degree
Computing is about understanding systems and the logical approach and analysis to problems and solutions. Technology and systems help other fields and businesses make sense of their data and make a positive difference in the world. Computing offers graduates many lucrative careers using their foundational knowledge in computer software design. Skills like problem solving and logical thinking can be applied to any field of work.
The Computer Science Department offers a variety of specific services. E-portfolio training is provided. There is also a yearly online portfolio competition to encourage students to combine their technical skills with their interest/passion. The department provides consultations on technical interview skills, resume-editing, and cover-lettering writing. Every term, panelists from a variety of technology sectors come and share their career experiences as well as tips on career preparation.
In addition, the department offers a wide range of volunteering options for students to engage with the community, including organizing GIRLsmarts workshops for Grade 6 and 7 girls, delivering TechTrek workshops and summer camps for high school students, implementing technology-related projects for non-profit organizations, and participating in Computer Science departmental committees to improve the education and research experience of students.
