Fueling a journey of knowledge, inspiration, & opportunity for students across Canada

About Us

CUSEC is an annual software engineering conference organized by students for students across Canada. A small team of tech enthusiasts founded CUSEC in 2002 on a mission to educate, inspire, and expose students to a diverse range of areas in software engineering and computer science.

These set of values have been integrated into CUSEC for the last 22 years while enabling attendees to discover knowledgeable speakers, connect with sponsoring companies, and make lifelong friends in a safe and comfortable space.
