Welcome to the Computer Science Student Society, the student club for
undergraduates at the
UBC Department of Computer Science. We provide a
social space where everyone’s welcome (in ICICS 021), run events, and represent
your interests to the department. For more events you may be interested in,
the department’s calendar. Please
feel free to email us at [email protected].
We are looking to interview current 3rd and 4th year students in any UBC CS undergraduate degree program (e.g. BSc in CS, Combined Majors, BUCS, Cognitive Systems - Computational Intelligence and Design, etc) about your experiences in your CS program.
The interviews will last about an hour, and will be scheduled at a time that is convenient for participants. We are able to compensate participants $20 cash for their time.
If you have any questions, please contact Alice Campbell, Science Education Specialist, Department of Computer Science, UBC. [email protected]

CS Coffee Chat is a program that randomly pairs a junior (1st or 2nd year) student with a senior (3rd+ year) student for a quick meet-up on a monthly basis. This is a low-commitment and informal opportunity for junior students to ask questions about Computer Science majors, classes, extracurriculars, or internships and senior students to share their experiences! If more junior than senior students sign up, we’ll make sure everyone is still in placed a match in a group of three - either in a group of three or with another junior student.
Make new friends and get to know other people walking around ICICS :)
Sign-ups are closed for October and November rounds.
We had a great turnout for both months, with 40 people in October and 84 in November. Since December is finals season, we look forward to picking this up again next January.
Every month, we open the form on first day and close on the last day. Matchings are then sent out to your email during the first week of next month. If you have any questions, reach out to [email protected]
We held a kick-off on Oct 16th for you to meet your match in person and meet other people in CS Coffee Chat over snacks and light refreshments. We have yet to decide if we’ll be running the meet-up again, but if we do, we’ll be sure to let you know here and in weekly emails.
