Workshops & Certificate Option

This year, the Graduating Workshop Series includes both virtual live workshops and additional resources and support on Canvas. When you participate in three virtual workshops, attend the "Beyond the BSc" event, and complete the reflection assignments, you'll be recognized for your achievement with a Certificate of Completion. You can use this as an example to demonstrate your motivation and follow through to employers.

Virtual workshops are held Saturday mornings, 10 - 11:15 AM PST, in January and February. Beyond the BSc is held on Wednesday Jan 27 from 5:30 - 7 PM PST.
