<h3 class="text-center">Faculty & Academic-Support Software Team</h3>
<p>FAST is an initiative to bring together developers from various teams across the University of Waterloo. Together we work to support and maintain one another's efforts, and improve the ecosystem of locally developed software.</p>
<p>These small teams have generally provided internal application development for their individual departments, but as we move forward in the modern technilogical era we will work together to bring out the best that each dev team has to offer, and actively share with one another.

<h3 class="">Custom-Built Code</h3>
<p class="">Whenever a tool is generalized for public use, that often means it comes with the added bulk of options and features that the university simply doesn’t need. By developing our own tools on-campus, we can ensure that the university’s unique requirements are put first and foremost, while generalized features can be added at a later time as seen fit.</p>
<p>With a capable set of staff, students, and faculty, the tools made here are always constructed with creative and innovative ideas with the insightful input of all parties on campus.</p>

<h3 class="">Co-op Opportunities</h3>
<p class="">The University of Waterloo is the proud home of the largest co-op programs in Canada, and indeed <a href="https://ontariosuniversities.ca/stories/the-worlds-largest-co-op-program">the whole world</a>, and we are extremely confident in the great potential and wealth of skills that our co-op students possess. As a result, we consistently employ our co-op students to assist in the development of on-campus tools from start to finish, under the supervision of full-time professional staff.</p>
<p>This valuable experience guarantees that students will leave their co-op job equipped with a complete suite of highly marketable and transferrable skills for use in future positions or the creation of their own tools and businesses.</p>

<p>Many of the tools we develop on-campus are programmed to share data only with other approved on-campus projects through APIs, guaranteeing a secure and controlled flow of data from within the university without unnecessary duplication of private data.</p>
