The Co-op Program is excited to announce that the new Master of Applied Computer Science (MACS) program will have a co-op option for students. Our first intake of students will be in September 2020.
Masters Co-op Program Overview
Our master's MACS co-op students complete 8 months of work experience in appropriate fields of business, industry, government, non-profits, and academic studies. While completing the work experiences, students complete required learning assignments and are monitored and evaluated by the Co-op Office and their employer. Monitoring and evaluation will assist the student with learning and understanding of self and the world of work. As with many Co-op Education programs in Canada, graduate co-op students will complete two professional development seminars, 2 work terms (8 months, summer & fall), and our capstone course COOP 530.
First-year students enrolled in the Masters of Applied Computer Science are eligible to apply in September 2020.
