Welcome to the Computing Science Co-op program at SFU

Our School's Co-operative Education Program combines relevant job experience with classroom studies. Students complete up to five work term semesters, depending on their academic program.  Co-op students alternate studies and work semesters before returning for at least one final semester of academic courses.

Our Co-op program is an optional component of the School of Computing Science curriculum in the Faculty of Applied Sciences at SFU. The Co-op program provides services on the Burnaby (Computing Science) and Surrey (Software Systems) campuses of SFU, including all graduate students, and is accredited by the Canadian Association for Co-operative Education.

Computing Science students interested in Co-op should review the requirements  of the Co-op program and also attend a Co-op Info Session to get more insights about experiential learning.

Our Co-op program offers opportunities which enhance a student's employability after graduation. We work with our students to help them prepare their job search strategy and materials, conduct professional interviews, and support the exploration and development of their career goals. Our students secure work terms across Canada and internationally in places such as the Silicon Valley, Germany, Japan, Hong Kong, Taiwan and China.
