CO-OP/Practicum Information

In your second year of the program, you must complete an experiential semester by undertaking either a co-operative education term or an industry project term.

Co-operative education integrates related on-the-job training with classroom theory by alternating terms of academic study and paid employment.  Provided you have a minimum grade point average (GPA) of 2.0, you have the option of taking a four-month paid Co-op work experience term. The College makes every effort to secure work placements for all Co-op students. However, the College does not unconditionally guarantee a work placement to students who enroll in programs incorporating Co-op.

A Co-op tuition fee is charged to all students registered in a Co-op work term. Co-op fees cover work placement development, pre-employment instruction, and employment-related monitoring. You receive support from the coordinator in the work placement process and have the opportunity to apply for available Co-op work placements. Employment-related monitoring includes support and evaluation by the coordinator during and after the placement.

Industry project is available to students who choose an alternate experiential opportunity or have not obtained a Co-op position.  The industry project is an academic semester where groups of students are matched with predetermined industry partners to address an industry problem.  You will devote your entire semester to the development of this industry project.

An industry project fee is charged to all students registered in an industry project term.
