The course director will start the manual enrollment process and a few days later you should be able to complete manual enrollment at CCB125.

Projects from an internship also require a supervisor and contract. Projects have deliverables consisting of source code and documentation, consequently, projects from internships require employer permission that the deliverables are free to be used and modified by faculty and students in future projects.

Students should note that faculty are not obligated to supervise all or any applicants interested in a project and some projects may require particular experience with specific languages or hardware or good marks in specific courses.

You cannot enroll in COSC4080 through the Voice Enrollment system.

Please note that students enrolled in COSC4080 may be asked to make an oral presentation on their work to the class and interested faculty and students towards the end of each term.
