The School of Computer Science and the EPICentre in partnership with WEtech Alliance is excited to unveil the Developer Student Club program powered by Google Developers to the University of Windsor campus this Fall. Developer Student Clubs (DSC) are community groups for students from any academic background in their undergraduate or graduate term. By joining a DSC, students build their professional and personal network, get access to Google developer resources, and work together to build solutions for local problems in a peer-to-peer learning environment.
“We are capitalizing on the success of some our recent initiatives that have brought national attention to UWindsor, particularly the 2019 Canadian Undergraduate Computer Science Conference, to partner with global organizations that in-turn create boundless opportunities for our students” says UWindsor DSC Lead and 4th year Computer Science student Noah Campbell.
“This is a great way to kick-off a capstone project or finally start that fantastic business idea you’ve been thinking about.” Campbell adds.
The base of operations for this initiative will be housed in the UWindsor’s own EPICentre serving as a pipeline to support student entrepreneurs from all disciplines working on these projects. This strategic partnership will provide students with access to the shared workshop space, hot desks, and the myriad of entrepreneurial resources that EPICentre offers the campus community.
The club has a series of events planned and is currently seeking new members to join their mailing list at https://bit.ly/2KXVGi6 to get an understanding on the demand for workshops on Google products to assist students in executing their vision.
