BTM - Co-operative Education Program

Overview: 

The co-op work term is a unique component of the Business Technology Management degree program. Students will gain experience during two paid co-operative work terms (see below). With over 3,500 employers in the ICT database, students will be provided real job opportunities that complement their academic studies.

Students in their final two years of the BTM program enrol in two courses specific to professional practices. They also benefit from at least one paid co–op work–term, an experience highly valued by both students and employers. Our industry partners are committed to providing meaningful work assignments.

Students in the co–op option take WTP200 (Co–op Professional Practice) in the semester preceding their first co–op work–term, and WTR200 (Co–op Integration and Career Planning) in the semester following their first co–op work–term.

Did you know?

Since 2004, the School of ICT has been able to place 100% of our job-seeking students in co-op work placements. That says something about the level of preparedness of our students.

This record exceeds the placement rate (by a wide margin) experienced during the height of the "dot com" boom a decade ago, and rivals or exceeds co-op placement rates at other colleges and universites.

Students who begin the Software Development program in September 2013 (or later) will participate in two work terms.

Fees: 

The current co-op fee is $495 per work-term and it is billed upon acceptance into the co-op program. If a program contains more than one work-term, the co-op fee is billed in the semester prior to each subsequent work-term.
