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].
UBC Culture and Self Lab - Develop a computer game
The UBC Culture and Self Lab is looking for students, specifically with
experience in Computer Science to assist with a study involving attention and
memory. The ideal research assistant will be asked to create a multi-player,
2-dimensional virtual board game for use in the study. The game is a simplified
interpretation of an old board game called ‘Game of Life’ where people make
educational, employment and family decisions which determine their ‘success’ at
the end. Data captured from participant decisions during the game play will be
collated and analysed toward the research findings.
The RA may get involved in the entire research process, from design to analysis.
The project will be under the direction of the Principal Investigator, Dr.
Steven Heine and his graduate student, Anita Schmalor. Letters of reference will
be provided if needed.
To apply, please forward your unofficial transcript and CV to the lab manager,
Vanessa - [email protected]
Queer Coded Survey
Are you a CS student who identifies as queer and/or trans? Are you interested in
joining a student group that lets you connect with others in the queer
community? This is your chance to make your voices heard.
Queer Coded is a newly created, student-run, social and support group for queer
and/or trans people in the CS department. Our goal is to create a safe, engaging
environment, and to provide opportunities for personal and professional
We would love to hear your thoughts and ideas! If you are interested, please
fill out the survey, provided below:
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 & Computer Engineering. This is a wonderful way for you to showcase your portfolio, and network with a wide range of companies to find out about internships and post-graduate career opportunities.
Hosted jointly by UBC Computer Science Student Society (CSSS), UBC IEEE, Cognitive Systems Society, and Engineering Physics, the Technical Career Fair will be held on Jan. 31, 2019 @ 10am-4pm in the West Atrium of the UBC Life Sciences Centre.
Volunteering as a Technovation mentor is a great way to share your passion for
computer science, and gain leadership and teaching experience. We are looking
for dependable, responsible, enthusiastic people, preferably with a background
in Computer Science, to help mentor teams of 3-5 girls in Grades 8-12 as they
participate in the Technovation Challenge.
The time commitment and schedule will be established by you and your team, but
we encourage you to meet with your team weekly either online or in person. All
undergraduates will be paired with another mentor (either from industry or a
fellow undergraduate) so you can share this responsibility.
Please visit https://technovationchallenge.org/ for more information. To sign
up, please register as a mentor on the Technovation website and fill in this
form. All volunteers are welcome!
We look forward to hearing from you!

event that is a great intro to the world of hackathons for students ALL OVER
iGEM recruiting members
UBC iGEM is currently in the process of recruiting members for the new year, and
because of the multidisciplinary aspect of the iGEM competition, they are
looking for computer science students to join our team. In this competition
students get to work on a project throughout the summer that can help advance
the field of synthetic biology, as well as attempt to solve real world problems.
UBC’s team has always been a strong participant since 2009 and they are
currently looking for able applicants that will help continue they success.
