Mark Brockington

Lead Programmer, Bioware Corp.

"The University of Alberta Computing Science program is fantastic at both the undergraduate and at the graduate level. It's a fun place to be, with lots of great professors who care about teaching."

Allyson Cairns

Operational Data Store Developer, Bell Canada

"I would definitely recommend computing science to others, especially women. The IT (information technology) industry is still very male-dominated; it would be nice to see more females entering the field."

Rohit Kapoor

Master Inventor / Software Engineer, IBM

"The University of Alberta (U of A) was a great springboard for me. IBM recruited me right on the U of A campus. I have been at IBM for four years and I am still having fun."

Jeremy Handcock

Software Engineer, Amazon.com

"Overall, the quality of instruction is superb at the U of A... The length of the internship isn’t very common. They’re usually shorter. In 16 months you get a real exposure to how things work, and you can actually make a real contribution."

Stella Luk

BSc Honors (Computing Science), MA (International Relations), Law Student

"Some of the best computing science people are the ones who didn’t know a thing about computers before they went to university."
