The Faculty of Arts and Science has published the 2023 Year in Review. Many of the Queen’s School of Computing’s memorable moments are mentioned throughout this feature.
Here is a look back at some of the highlights from Queen’s School of Computing in 2023!
Ahmed Hassan is a recipient of the 2023 Mustafa Prize in recognition of his achievements in AI-guided Software Engineering, having created the Mining Software Repositories (MSR) field over two decades ago.
Established in 2015, the Mustafa Prize is recognized one of the world’s most prestigious scientific awards. It is a prize that Science Magazine acknowledges as being equivalent in prestige to a Nobel Prize.
The Vanier Canada Graduate Scholarships is one of the most prestigious national awards for doctoral students. Five Queen’s students are among this year’s recipients recognized for their exceptional research achievements and leadership skills.
The team formed the company Good2Go, an on-campus grocery store that aims to address affordability and accessibility to food products for all students. The company proposed partnering with local big-name grocery stores (No Frills, Metro, Longos etc.) to take their near-expired products and sell them at cost on campus. They would also partner with food banks to not only help supply catch up with demand but to eliminate the stigma of visiting a food bank.
Two Faculty of Arts and Science students have been accepted to the Cansbridge Fellowship – Olivia Xu (Department of Computer Science) and Samantha Lin (Department of Global Development Studies). The unique Fellowship program is made up of three parts – the Silicon Valley Experience, the Asia Summer Internship, and the Cansbridge Network.
The university-wide award is presented to a Faculty member (current or retired) who self-identifies as a woman and who has supported women in achieving their goals, inspired students, and demonstrated mentorship and knowledge sharing.
The Award for Excellence in Graduate Student Supervision recognizes those supervisors who demonstrate outstanding excellence in advising, monitoring, and mentoring graduate students.
The Homecoming luncheon in October welcomed 200 Arts and Science alumni and community members back on campus. Elevate ArtSci, a new networking series for alumni and donors, launched in Kingston in October.
