Co-operative Work Experience

Co-operative Education in Computing Science allows students to gain valuable, career-related, paid work experience. Think you can wait to gain experience until after you graduate? Many employers prefer recent grads with experience. Here are the many ways in which students can benefit from the program:

  • apply your classroom knowledge to practical situations
  • gain a better understanding of your course work
  • increase your competitiveness in the marketplace
  • build a strong application for graduate studies
  • work locally, nationally, and internationally!

Did you know that over 85% of our co-op students find employment with one of their co-op employers right after graduation?

Making it simple! Here's what's offered to accommodate you:

  • work terms available year-round (Spring, Summer, Fall)
  • 24/7 online resources
  • workshops and seminars on professional development
  • Co-op advisors to help you along the way!
