Congratulations to our SITE students!
For a second year, twelve of our SITE undergraduate students participated in the Nortel Case Competition. During the fall 1999 semester, engineering students got together with students from the Faculty of Administration to compete with Carleton University teams in this case competition sponsored by Nortel Networks. Each team had to develop and present a detailed, professional business plan for a fictitious company to provide telecommunications services to small and medium size businesses in Toronto and Montreal. The plan included a complete market analysis, a telecommunications network design and a business case.
At a venture capitalist gala held on December 4th in Château Cartier, the six UofO teams impressed the panel and the attendance with the high quality of their presentations. The first and second places for the University of Ottawa finally went respectively to the teams VIA Networks (with SITE students Sherif Awad and Wael Hermas) and Frontel (with SITE students Pierre Laporte and Babak Noory).
Congratulations to all of the SITE participants, whose hard work and professional presentations did us proud!
