Cooperative Education

The Cooperative Education program is an opportunity for students to gain valuable on-the-job work experience and develop their skills as self-directed, responsible, lifelong learners.  Coop work experiences allow students to apply and refine the knowledge and skills they acquired in a related curriculum course. In addition to hands-on work experience, log and journal entries are required to form the basis of the student’s day to day work experience. These entries provide opportunity for the student to explain to the Co-op monitor and their supervisor the type of activities and job tasks that they have been completing at their work placement.
