The UPEI Co-op Program is an integrated approach to university education which enables students to alternate academic terms on campus with work terms in suitable employment. The success of such programs is founded on the principle that students are able to apply theoretical knowledge from course studies in the workplace and return to the classroom with practical workplace experience.
Students accepted into the program, complete at least three 14-week paid work terms and three professional development courses.
The Co-op option is available to full-time students in any Mathematical and Computational Sciences Major or Honours program. Applications to the Co-op Education Program are normally made after completion of the first year of study.
Mathematical and Computational Sciences students must complete 126 semester hours of credit in order to graduate with the Co-op designation; students who successfully complete all the requirements of the program will have the notation entered on their transcripts and on the graduation parchment.
