First CyberSocial of the season on Sept. 19 September 10, 2012

Posted by Jane Fritz in Event, September 2012.

The September Fredericton CyberSocial is almost here!

The kids are in school and everyone is back from summer vacations, it’s time to start networking and gearing up for another wild ride.

And what better way to cap off a great summer than to attend the September Cybersocial at the James Joyce Pub, 4:30-6:30.

Food, fun and networking!

Computer Science as a discipline started at UNB in the Department of Electrical Engineering in 1968. It became a School within the Faculty of Engineering in 1972, and was made a Faculty in 1990. The undergraduate Bachelor of Computer Science (BCS) program has been nationally accredited since 1987, and was reaccredited by the Canadian Information Processing Society (CIPS) in 2009. The Bachelor of Science in Software Engineering program (offered jointly with the Faculty of Engineering) was accredited by the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board (CEAB) in 2006, and reaccredited in 2009. Computer Science has the oldest and the largest co-op program at UNB (both campuses). The Co-op program has been nationally accredited by the Canadian Association For Co-operative Education (CAFCE) since 1998. This year we will be celebrating a major milestone: 30 years of Co-operative Education.

As of September 6, 2012, we have a total of 472 registered students (343 undergraduate and 129 graduate students). Of 129 graduate students, 34 of them are PhD students. Research activities within our Faculty continue to expand and diversify, and the expertise of our researchers covers most of the major areas of Computing.

The Faculty has relationships with the government and regional industry through the Co-op program and the ITC, and our faculty members serve on provincial, national, and industry boards, councils and committees. The Faculty is engaged in research with government and industry.
