1 Opportunities: About to Graduate? Consider graduate studies in the Department of Computer Science Many, many research areas: AI, graphics, machine learning, theory, empirical algorithms, bioinformatics, robotics, computer vision, natural language, networks, security, software engineering, databases, verification, scientific computing,... M.Sc. takes months, including 8-12 months of coursework and 4-16 months of research You get paid! Apply ASAP (accepted until at least end of February) January 2014Ian M. Mitchell — UBC Computer Science 1

2 Opportunities: Not about to Graduate? Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) Undergraduate Student Research Awards (USRAs) See what academic research really looks like Many research areas:... – Google “ubc cs usra” for full list of projects seeking students I have several project proposals: – Automated parameter discovery for my verification software – Control synthesis from nonsmooth interpolants under uncertainty – Collaborative control scheme testing for a smart wheelchair – Serious games for wheelchair training 16 weeks, flexible schedule You get paid! potential sponsor ASAP (full applications due by Feb 14) January 2014Ian M. Mitchell — UBC Computer Science 2

3 Opportunities: Special Courses Get credit for learning about something that is not part of our regular course offerings CPSC 448, Directed Studies in Computer Science: Supervised reading, participation in a seminar, or programming projects. CPSC 449, Honours Thesis: Under supervision of a faculty member, students investigate a research topic and prepare a thesis. CPSC 490, Student Directed Seminars: Self-directed, collaborative studies, in a group-learning environment, initiated and coordinated by senior undergraduate students with the supervision of a faculty advisor. Align with a regular teaching term (including summer) Talk to CS advisor or potential supervisor before the term January 2014Ian M. Mitchell — UBC Computer Science 3

4 Beyond CPSC 302 / 303 More ways to learn more about numerical analysis in regular courses: – CPSC 402 / 406 are taught in alternating years – Math, EOAS and Physics have a few numerical courses as well – Graduate courses in numerical analysis are taught every year (and undergraduates can take them with instructor permission) If you have further questions about these opportunities contact Ian Mitchell your instructors or a CS advisor January 2014Ian M. Mitchell — UBC Computer Science 4
