Industry Connections

The Department of Computer Science strives to create strong relationships with industry and community organizations. We recognize the value of connecting post secondary education with industry experiences. There are plenty of opportunities to get involved in our research, programs, and events.

Engage with USask Students

The USask employer portal is a central hub for employers looking to connect with students from a variety of programs. Here is a sample of some of the things you can access on this site: 

  • post a job to students (outside of our internship program)
  • find ways to engage with other USask programs
  • schedule an information session on campus
  • career fair dates and registration
  • funding resources to help hire students

Support Through Sponsorship

There's no denying that donations play a big part in attracting the highest caliber of students to our programs. Awards and scholarships positively affect a student's academic experience and encourage further engagement at the academic and professional levels.
