McWiCS - McGill Women in Computer Science
We are cultivating a community for collaboration, exploration, and expanding opportunities for women within the field of computer science.
Community hangouts and dinners
Industry Mentorship Program
Company recruitment events
Members resources and guides
And finally, we're here to celebrate the beautiful, diverse group of women in CS at McGill University!
Upperclassmen to P.h.D. students are matched 1:1 with Little CSters. Pairs are matched based on interests, personality, and experience, and bonding is especially encouraged!
Industry mentors provide valuable guidance and advice for their mentees, whom are matched to mentors based on goals and professional interests.
3-hour, introductory workshops are offered to explore various applications of computer science, from game development to neural machine learning to cryptography.
Distinguished researchers and professionals are invited to speak about an application of computer science and share their experiences.
