Every engineering program is different, and computer engineering is certainly one of the more variable programs between universities. My academic history provides a brief outline to computer engineering at the University of Waterloo, and lists the courses I chose to take.
My last two co-op terms were spent working at Microsoft on PhotoSuru, a WPF developer sample formerly available from www.photosuru.com (dead link). A video of the project (an interview with me on Channel9) provides a good overview.
I have been fortunate to work on technologies that are new and innovative enough to qualify for patent protection. My first patent, entitled Accessing Local Network Resources in a Multi-Interface System, is available online at the Canadian Intellectual Property Office.
