  • Undergrads: have you ever thought of designing an app for Google Glass? Well here's your chance! In collaboration with TELUS, we are inviting you to participate in a challenge over the next 2 weeks! Get a team of 2-4 members, and register now! Get started today!
  • ECE's 3rd annual TI Day @ Mac is on Sat Sept 20, 2014. This popular Texas Instruments event has been expanded this year, and the number of workshop topics has increased. The event is open to everyone. Undergrad students entering 4th year will find these workshops particularly beneficial for their capstone projects! Space is limited. Registration deadline is Sept 10.
  • BioMed students: to register in Hlth Sci 2L03 or Hlth Sci 2LL3 you must register in Hlth Sci 1BS0 first.

  • 4th year Research Project Courses - students wishing to do individual research: if you want to take a research project course in one term you register for 4OJ4 in Term 1, or 4OK4 in Term 2; and if you want to do a project course in both terms you register for 4OJ4 & 4OH4. The prefix to this code is Elec Eng OR Comp Eng - depending on your program.
