Co-op, Why not?

Computing Science

Are you one of those students who just want to finish their undergraduate degree extremely early and land a full-time career all in less than 3 years? Joseph, a software systems major, originally planned on graduating in 3 years, until he discovered the co-op program. He recognized the endless opportunities the co-op program offers and ended up extending his graduation by completing internships at BlackBerry and Alcatel-Lucent. Thanks to co-op, not only did Joseph gain strong software engineering skills first-hand in the real world, but also developed invaluable connections across the country.
