UBC Technical Career Fair

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 2,200 undergraduates in a range of computer science majors and combined majors, and over 250 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 2020 Technical Career Fair will be held on Jan 30 and Jan 31 at the NEST.  For application instructions, see attached PDF at the end of this page.  The application deadline is November 29. Questions: contact careerfair@ubccsss.org
