Canadian University Software Engineering Conference 2019 (CUSEC) is a 3-day technology conference geared towards university students and it is held every year in Montreal. It is one of the largest events of this kind in Canada with over 500 students attending last year of which about 80 were from Carleton alone (from various departments including Computer Science and Engineering).
CUSEC is a great learning and networking opportunity for students although it is hard for many students to attend because of the costs associated with attending (accommodation and transportation). We want to make the conference more inclusive for everyone by providing subsidized costs for students and the only way this can happen is by raising some funds!
We would like to raise $5,000 for the Carleton student delegation. The money will go towards subsidizing their accommodation and transportation.
Students who want to attend CUSEC but cannot because of the high costs for attending the conference would now have an opportunity to attend. They can grow from the learning and networking opportunities provided at the conference, and it also makes Carleton proud when we can send a large, inclusive and diverse delegation.
