Co-operative (Co-op) education alternates semesters of classroom studies with paid, full-time work, giving you hands-on experience that will make you job ready when you graduate. Work terms are usually four or eight months and take place after you have completed the second or third semester of your academic program.
You’ll build your resumé and network with employers while earning money and finishing your credential.
