Spice Up Your Life
The Spice Up Your Life! event is Meet & Greet event we organize between students and professors within the Computer Science and Software Engineering (CSE) department. These professors are interested in finding students to help them with their research; this event is a great opportunity for students to get to know the professors and learn about the potential undergraduate research opportunities with the professors over the summer, such as the NSERC USRA program. If that wasn't enough, this event includes FREE spicy food!

SCS Algorithm Time
Algorithm Time is a 2-hour event that happens every week; at each session, we will solve problems of different levels and, at the end, discuss the various methods and algorithms that can be used to solve the problems.
This event will help you sharpen your problem solving skills and prepare you for coding questions that you will see during job interviews! So, come practice your skills with us and also have some fun! All skill levels are welcome, and volunteers will be there to help if you need it!
SCS Coding Nights happens twice a month during the evening, where you can work on a project of your choice, or program in teams in a pre-determined project! Last year, the project was to create a chess bot. Help is provided throughout the development process, along with introductions for how to use Git for group projects, creating object-oriented logic, and more.
