Industry Outreach

Why Collaborate with UBC Computer Science?

Preparing our students to become productive members of the workforce occurs primarily in the classroom, but we also provide students with the opportunity to engage with the local, national, and international firms in which they will ultimately be employed. Our students are highly motivated to find jobs where they can use their skills in stimulating and rewarding work environments, and we are highly motivated in helping them find those environments. To that end, we have a number of creative venues for connecting you with them.

Undergraduate Community Building

FOWCS luncheons and dinners are held monthly; speakers from industry and academia are invited to come and shaire their career experience with students. We also hold workshops and panels on topics designed to encourage women in Computer Science. Past topics have included salary negotiation, presentation skills, preparing applications to graduate school, and "Thrive as a Women in Technology."

Emergency Disaster Kits

Plan for 72 hours

The department maintains a small number of flash lights, first aid kits, and blankets on hand for emergencies. We do not store water or food in case of longer emergencies. It is recommended that building occupants make personal emergency disaster kits to last for 72 hours.

Here is shortlist of items recommended for a personal Emergency Disaster Kit..
