In 2005, Cognos established a partnership with the Faculty of Engineering to provide computer science students with a unique learning opportunity. Cognos created a prize to recognize the top fourth year honours project in the Computer Science project course (CSI 4900 both fall and winter) that demonstrates innovation, collaboration and ingenuity throughout the project. Valued at $2,000, the prize will be split equally among the student members of the winning project. Students must be in good standing to be eligible for the prize. Projects will be evaluated by the project Faculty advisor and recommended to the course coordinator for consideration.
All students registered in the CSI4900 course are eligible. You also must be a member of a team participating in a project and be in good academic standing (DGPA of 4.5 or higher)
Teams can be comprised of 1-3 members.
Your faculty advisor will provide an assessment and recommendation of your project to the CSI course coordinator. Recommendations will comment on the level of teamwork (where applicable), the complexity of the problem and the originality of the project. Final selection will be done by a committee appointed by the CSI course coordinator based on the recommendation and final oral presentation.
