The Computer Science department is launching our 2nd annual e-Portfolio competition for undergraduate Computer Science students in all years. We invite you to consolidate what you have learned in classes and showcase your technical skills by putting projects online in the form of an e-Portfolio.
Information Session and Training
Come find out about the competition and learn more about starting your own project and putting together an e-Portfolio. We will be organizing an info and training session on Thursday, Nov 15 from 5:15 to 6:30 pm at DMP 110. At the info session, we will showcase e-Portfolios of last year's winners, and give you more details about what you could include in your e-Portfolio. TELUS will be sending speakers to talk about how to put together interesting projects that will showcase students' technical skills. Topics covered will include pitch, implementation, design, and technology relevance.
Please sign up below so we know how much food to order.
More and more employers now ask job applicants to include samples of their work (or a link to a website where these are hosted) in their application.
By developing an e-portfolio (online samples of your work) for the contest, you'll be ready to creatively showcase your best technical skills.
Overall Contest Guidelines
Assume that an employer would be reviewing the e-portfolio you submit. You will want to highlight the best examples of your work.
The e-portfolio needs to be as well organized, concise and creative as possible. Employers don’t have time to review web page after web page of poorly organized information.
The judges will be evaluating your e-portfolio based on originality, creativity, presentation, depth of thinking and your technical understanding of an area of study.
Prizes will include an iPad mini, Android phone, and Apple Store gift cards.
e-Portfolio Submission Deadline
