UBC Technical Career Fair

Event Information

Welcome to the Technical Career Fair. Traditionally held in January at the UBC campus, the fair offers you an opportunity to meet our students, survey their potential as future employees, and alert them to job and career opportunities in your company.

The Department of Computer Science has more than 2,000 undergraduates in a range of computer science majors and combined majors, and several hundred graduate students. Employers attending the Career Fair can meet with this year’s undergraduate, masters, and PhD graduating students seeking post-commencement employment, and to other students looking for part-time, summer, and co-op work experience.

Last year, over 50 companies attended the Tech Career Fair to meet undergraduate and graduate students from a wide range of disciplines, including Computer Science, Cognitive Systems, Engineering Physics, and Electrical and Computer Engineering.

The Technical Career Fair is typically held at the end of January. More information will be posted on this site during the summer. For immediate information contact Michele Ng - 604-822-5693.
