Hiring Computing Science Students

Hire computing science talent

Benefit from our undergraduate and graduate students’ skills and education and make a meaningful impact on their professional development. Opportunities include developing co-op work opportunities, hosting employer information sessions to promote careers within your organization, and building mentorship partnerships with the School.

Co-op work opportunities

Co-operative education at SFU (co-op) is a partnership between you, the School of Computing Science and the students you hire. It’s an opportunity for you to hire an engaged and talented student and to help develop their workplace and professional skills.

Through co-op, undergraduate and graduate students undertake work-term(s) with an employer. Each co-op work term counts as academic credit and makes up part of a student’s completed degree.  Co-op placements are paid, supervised work terms and must relate to a student’s academic program. It must include 420 hours of work over a four- to eight-month period.  All placements must adhere to BC employment standards requirements.

Another way to get involved is to hold an information session at the school. We regularly provide opportunities for companies to visit the school and meet our talented students.


There are many ways a partnership could benefit your company. Talk to us about forming a research partnership to find out how we can help you.
