Timeline: Fall Semester
Whether you are a current computer science major or considering computer science as a major, this program is an excellent opportunity to gain valuable advice and perspective from professionals in the field.
A panel of William & Mary CS alumni will discuss their education and career paths, trends and opportunities in the field, and what qualities employers look for in students. There will also be an informal networking session with the panelists.
The Annual CS T-Shirt Design Contest
