The Computer Science department is presenting our 4th annual e-Portfolio competition for CS undergraduate students.
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. The judges will be evaluating your e-portfolio based on originality, creativity, depth of thinking and your technical understanding of an area of study. There will be additional bonus points if your project/portfolio has a community service component to it.
Possible things to include:
- Independent projects you’ve developed e.g. computer-generated artistic work; mobile apps; business plan; computer games.
- Research projects, highlighting your particular contribution.
- School projects, either individual or team. If you include a team project, be explicit about your particular role in its success.
Prizes for winners include a $500 cash prize donated by MyPlanetDigital, an Android phone donated by Google, and other additional company-sponsored prizes.
The deadline for submitting your completed portfolio to the competition is Feb. 23, 2015 at 12 noon. Winners will be announced in late March 2015.
Note: This contest is open to UBC Computer Science majors only.
