The Bisons’ Programming Team (BPT) executives, and, by extension, the UMIEEE Student Branch executives, would like to take time to thank the ECE department for providing our team with a platform for success with their kind donation of CAD 500.00. In addition, our chair and executives would like to also thank Dr. Jeffrey for his time bringing this idea forward, providing all the instructional sessions to BPT’s members so far, and supporting the BPT executives with its continued development.

How To Join Bisons’ Programing Team

To join BPT, you will need to join our Discord server: here (may need to create a Discord account if you do not already have one). After joining the server, head to the #inactives channel. There, send a message to our chair, Mahyar Mirrashed that you are wanting to join BPT. He will assign you the role to then view the programming-chat channel. Then, if you have any further questions, please contact any of the BPT leads: Andrea, Anh, or Bryce and they will be glad to assist!

Super glad to have you on the team!
